Above Stratton

Yesterday morning I scouted the location with the 8x10 art stix drawing, and this morning I went back to paint the 9x12 oil on panel of the barn below a slope facing the Taconics in the background.  This location is above Stratton Road, which is out of sight.  The sketch was done from a point further away, but I decided to get closer for the painting.  Not sure why.  Maybe I liked the tree going over the edge of the mountain.  But I also like the tree below the mountain edge,  so I may do this one again sometime.  I went out again this afternoon, but will post the resulting painting tomorrow when it's supposed to rain.
