Getting Ready to Begin my Forgotten Dreams piece

Earlier this year I did an on line workshop with Welsh artist Haf Weighton and while architectural landscapes are not my usual type of art work, I decided I would like to capture, in art, the passing of the small family farm as farms grow larger and the houses that once held a family's hopes and dreams pass into dilapidation. I was travelling up to a local hosta grower to get some hostas for the garden when I spied this old homestead. It sort of epitomised my subject. I can't find the process video that I know I saw on Haf's work so I will have to wing it as best I can and use my own process work so the effect might be totally original
