Out Barn

Acrylic on Panel - (repainted in 2011 - this version is gone)

A dull foggy morning in Sonoma, but a few of us set up in hopes that the sun would appear. Angela Fabela from the Monday Morning Painters was with us and he pointed out this small building to me.

What I liked about it was that there was a lot going on in the foreground, but that the rest of it went way back to the woods. Looking at the results, it kinda wound up flatter than I'd hoped. It's probably because the detail and size of brushwork is the same throughout. Hmmm.

Well, I think it's great! Lots of loose brushwork, beautiful greens varying from warm to cool, a feeling of depth. I like it. So there!
