Painting - Oil On Canvas
This painting was done on location in the morning in about two hours. An old barn in the middle of farm country. This old barn reminded me of my childhood days on the farm. The weathered look of the barn contribute to the feeling of its many years of usefullness to its owner and the livestock it has sheltered. The lonely two track in the foreground continues to meander past the right side of the barn and off into the distant field. The left side of the painting is framed with an upclose oak tree, its roots working thier way out into the road. There is the hint of a path leading up to the barn door which was closed but I decided to paint it open to make it look more inviting and add mistery to what might be inside. A broken fence is in the near distance along with another shade tree to the right side of the barn and near the road. In the far distance behind the barn and along the side of the road is a hay field. Past the hayfield is an overgrown hedge row and then the scene is finished off with a cerulean blue summer sky with a hint of clouds. While the day is getting underway the owls have probably gone to sleep inside this old building. This painting is protected by copyright.
