The Farm At Burpee Hill
“This is a case in point for artistic license. I painted “The Farm At Burpee Hill” near New London, New Hampshire a few years back but wasn’t happy with it. The draft horse that was originally there drew too much attention away from the barn, which I wanted to be the focal point. So I painted him out. Then I lightened all the shadows. Still not happy. Then I added some color to the barn, which in reality was a dull grey and added some fall color to the trees. Then I added a more interesting sky. Finally I was and am still, happy with it. A little part of me wants to record these things just as they are but what one sees rarely makes the best painting as is.” Craig Pursley
