Not Another Barn

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.

The wood is a soft gray , almost as gray as I am. Lovely touch of violet in the sky, slightly exotic.

Marcia, Thanks. I didn't want to obsess over the lines in the wood. The gray of the wood is soft and much nicer than my painting. I am quite fond of this barn.
