Edge of Nowhere by eborch Edge of Nowhere by eborch
This is an oil painting I made from photographs taken while driving around DeKalb County, IL. Throughout my drive, there seemed to be countless, winding roads leading nowhere and many small pockets of civilization.

I really love your style. There's something almost psychedelic about it, but there's still a touch of realism that really grabs your attention. I like the contrast of the warm glow from inside the buildings with the coldness of the outside.

You have a very unique style, van gogh-ish, or that is what it stirs in my lizard brain. I hope you fully develop this voice. Nice work!

it's quite impressing the fact you draw simply houses and railed/pointed nature... colors are super

what i appreciate the most in this painting is the contrast between the static buildings and the texturised, fluid environment.

I like it! It's quite unusual, the colors the movement...even if there is no movement there.

You know, once a man called Van Gogh saw the things the same way...

Its amazing all the patterns you have instilled in this piece. It has so much movement and flow either into the forest or into the houses. Like there is only two roads that of civilization or that of wild.
