"Cloudy Day", oil on panel, 9x12, $320
I've drawn and tried to paint this group of barns before without much success, but this time I really simplified things, and I think it works well. It helped that the light was so dramatic. This painting is a testament to the durability of Gessoboard - a prepared brand of panel. I was given this panel as a sample years ago when I took a workshop with Richard McDaniel, and because it's a size I don't use, it's been kicking around the trunk of my car ever since. I showed up at the location without my box of prepared panels (OOPS!) and was about to head home when I saw this panel at the bottom of the trunk. Saved!
