Beili Farm


oil on canvas 8x10"
this is the drive way to our house,
wich is on the left throwing the large shadow,
you can see one of the barns in front of a big play area,
where the boys and i have played many important football matches.

I like the way you use color. This has a great value pattern to it Rob.
It is nice to hear about your soccer games with your boys too. It looks like a nice place to grow up.

Another fine one, Rob. Great colors and of course fantastic light (but you know I'd say that, didn't you). I really do like the decisiveness of your strokes.

Your work always makes me want to pack my bags and visit England. Maybe when the euro and dollar get back together we will!

maybe cooper you should sell your work here in britain...you get double the money...
it's hard,most of my racingcars go to the states and canada and they end up paying more than before...

Nice one Rob- I think the foreground warmth sets this off really well

Great value pattern. It just grabbed my eye and pulled it around the canvas.
Lovely, color harmony and distance.
