Barn, Late Evening
8 x 6 inches, oil on panel
I'm back from my summer posting hiatus, and happily so. Our family took priority this summer--lots of travel and down time with the girls and Ben. Our eldest is a senior this year, so my tendency to put my kids above my painting has been in full force. Now that they're back in school and I have blocks of time, though, I'm diving headlong into my work with a healthy mixture of fear and anticipation. Fear that I've forgotten everything (including how to post) and anticipation of the lofty goals I've set for myself. Bear with me as I "brush" the rust off and get back in the flow.
This piece is from a scene I came across this summer in a valley in northern California. I wish I could've stayed there and painted for a month. So many beautiful scenes, and this subtle evening light was delightful.
