Old Prairie Chapel


Old Prairie Chapel Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted February 26, 2010 –  I love these sunset lit paintings and I painted this one to show just that. The original picture I painted it from was taken in the 1960s and developed in my home darkroom in the 1970s (way before digital cameras) when I ran across the negatives after moving to California. I have thousands of these old pictures as I was an amateur photographer in those days. I like the warmth and lonely setting in this one. Your comments are welcome.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
