This afternoon I went out again to the homestead farm to paint this 9x12 oil on panel. The tall grass has been cut and baled so I have access to areas where I was reluctant to step in, never mind set up an easel. I tried to work as fast as I could. This took me about and hour and a half from the moment I started painting. It may be the last barn I do for a little while. I always wonder what, besides neglect, has been so tough on this barn.
