Calhoun County Courthouse
8X10, Oil on Panel
Calhoun County is one of the smallest in Arkansas by population. It is smack dab in the middle of timber country and I suspect the small population is due in part at least to the fact that timber companies own most of the land!
This painting was much more difficult than I believe it should have been and I'm not sure why. It was also terribly difficult to photograph. I may revisit this subject sometime in the future.
This is my first completed new county of the year! I have put myself under the gun in the first half of the year. I have committed to Cantrell Gallery that I will have this project complete by the time my show there hangs at the beginning of May! I have 13 counties left to do. Not sure how I'm going to pull this off.
