This painting by George Ault, called, "Festus Yayple and His Oxen" really captivated me and it actually makes me want to go to the Smithsonian Museum in person just to see this painting. It has this dark vibe to it that just makes it look almost mysterious. It has that realist yet animated feel to it.
This is another painting that I like by George Ault, called, "Night at Russell's Corners," as you can tell I really like his style of painting. This is so captivating and and the colors just mix so well together.
