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.
