                       Old Barn   Oils on canvas board   5 x 7 inches   SOLD

I love this little painting.   A visit to an Elizabethan Hall and Garden last month is when I saw this little barn quietly relaxing in retirement.  It was in the field behind the main gardens.  I have no idea how old it might be but I imagine it would have an interesting story to tell.

The light coming through the broken wood panels attracted me at first and I love all things rusty and crumbling.  A perfect subject for me to paint. I used broad brush strokes to stay loose and spontaneous.
