already got one

In my family history, generations worked the same farmland. I get that same feeling in the Skagit valley, as the flat fields fade to the horizon, with just a few roof peaks and trees for interest.

Masking tape created texture in the base collage layer, strips of remnants continued the horizontal lines, and a color wash warmed it up. I used two different Skagit horizons as a focal line, with rocks and red birch bark for texture, and verdigris, terracotta, and stone for a sense of age, as well as warmth.
