Red Barn

10x8 Oil on Canvas
The sun was right in my eyes while painting this one.
Does anyone know of a good plein air umbrella?

This is a warm and inviting painting. Your brush work is beautiful and the color joyful. I like the lacy pattern of the ground leading into the painting.

Yes, I agree with Pam here, the brushwork is fabulous. The colours work very well too and I like the fact that the red barn is almost suggested on the side and not totally prominent!
