22 STEP FOUR: INTERPRETATION What message does this artwork communicate to you? In this step you will explain or tell the meaning or mood of the work. Here you can make guesses about the artwork, as long as they appear to be supported by what you see in the work. Use your intelligence, imagination and courage.

23 STEP FOUR: INTERPRETATION Determination of American farmers to overcome hardships during a hard economic environment. To me it has a warm feeling. I can almost smell the bread baking in her oven and the cow mooing in the barn. The sky is clear and calm, The house is clean and enchanting. I get a feeling of hope for a brighter future.

24 STEP FIVE: JUDGEMENT Is this a successful work of art? In this step you determine the degree of artistic merit. Were the art elements use in a successful aesthetics way.

25 STEP FIVE: JUDGEMENT Personal Judgment Do you like the work? Why or why not be specific. No one can tell you what to like or dislike. You must make up your own mind.

26 STEP FIVE: JUDGEMENT I feel that this is an aesthetically successful painting. The art elements are organized in a pleasing and inspiring way. Making the art work easy to explore and understand. I have enjoyed this painting for many years and would enjoy having a copy in my home. I would be interested in exploring more art of this style by this artist.
