Description Abandoned farm machinery seems to naturally tell stories drawn from the history of the land and the character of the people who worked it. The dry Texas prairie grassland land baked under the unrelenting sun cause the light to shimmer through the tines and spokes of the rusting rake to provoke an an image that reminds the eye of light through the stained glass windows of a cathedral.The original of this work is an acrylic painting on 20'X24' canvas.
Kellam Brown, Plano, TX Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement For 40 years my profession has been software engineering and my avocation has been art. Now that is reversed. I began painting and "went pro" about 5 years ago. I've earned an AAA and am working on an MFA in illustration through the Academy of Art University in San Francisco (on-line). Since summer 2007 I've been teaching life drawing and pastel painting at the Art Institute in Dallas; I've found that I really enjoy teaching - at least in the college environment, and intend to make teaching my second career.
I participate in local and national art shows and competitions as well group and solo shows in the Dallas - Ft Worth area of Texas.
