A Country Landscape

A 9x12 oil on panel done this afternoon at a location near Stratton Road.   I've been experimenting with different panels.  I'm leaning towards the Gessobord so far as the best, though you must understand that money is an object, so my range is limited somewhat.   In this painting I wanted to include the barn to make it more interesting.  The dirt roadway also helps.  And the mountains, and the shadows, and the clouds.

I love the shadow in the foreground. Wonderful feeling of airiness and movement in this.

Marcia, Thank you for your perceptive comment. Actually the shadow is what motivated me to make the painting, and was the first thing I put on the panel.
