Long Barn

Long Barn
6 x 8 in., oil on panel

So many of the older structures I paint lie enveloped in foliage, whether trees, bushes, or tall grasses.  I like that when I exaggerated the roof line of this barn it wound up almost hugging the tree at its end.  For me, part of the charm of these spaces is trying to imagine what they looked like in their prime...and what purposes they've served over the years.
