Very painterly Jack, I like the "extreme" sky, plenty of dramatic contrast there.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A powerful work of art well done ... I can not see it as a painting done in oil ... Wonderful ... Can I authorize her to make a painting as a model? Thank you very much for taking my request ... and tell me something! A hug my friend! Muchos besos amigo y maestro! Tu amiga Adela

Superlative use of foreground, middleground and background planes. I love the mood of the brooding sky, like a tempest about to unleash its wrath.

Dramatic colors against such a gray and ominous sky. Great textures in the barn wood as well.

Very nice composition, with foreground, mid ground and infinity all playing important parts. The processing on the sky and barn look great, but the grass and flowers look a bit overcooked.
