Clapboards in Sunlight

The clapboard workshop or shed from a different position in an 18x24 oil on canvas.  When I first encountered this modest building two years ago, I was bowled over by its beauty.  Maybe it's an acquired taste, or something peculiar to me, but I love the way the sun illuminates it at all times of the day.  I probably love it also because it presents so many shapes and shadows despite its simplicity.

I agree.
You just can't beat a good shadow.
I can't wait to see more.

No pressure. No pressure. Except that the sun hasn't been shining much lately. I was looking at photos I took at the end of April and early May for the last two years, and spring is definitely late this year due to the cold and lack of sunshine. But I will get more clapboard shadows done!
