Old Tobacco Barn: New Landscape

She's still wet and I have her temporarily propped inside a colorful frame..but I promised to try and have her finished and posted by weeks end, so here she is.

Ya know what I've learned in completing this painting?  That once I've talked about working on a particular piece online and outloud, while also openly giving myself a deadline, it kind of gave me the push I needed to get-r-done on time, if you know what I mean?

I sure would love to know what my new friends think about her?  In the meantime, I'll be experimenting with different colored frames.  Like trying on a multitude of accessories to see how well they fit with the outfit. Closing for today.  I'll be looking for your comments.  Please be spirit is a tender one, more especially when it comes to my painting.  Blessings, joy and sunshine to all, Terri

G;eve Terri ~ I have a penchant for taking pics of old barns & structures of which I posted many ... I love your painting. In southern MD. we see lots of old tobacco barns with the tobacco hanging in the
door crossings, drying out ...

Have a beautiful weekend.

Terri -- I love it! You are right -- it is different from the bright colors you usually do, but I think it's just beautiful! Would look really pretty in a dark wood frame.

I love old barns too! Mr. FYN thinks I'm a cook because I'm always taking pictures of them on road trips!

Your art work is so fascinating. Every time I visit, I am treated to something new! Your landscape is very different than the others, but you already know that--being an artist and all. Anyway, it is lovely. I clicked on it to get a bigger and better view. You are an amazing talent--very far from ordinary. I want to hang out with you because anyone with that creative of an eye must be loads of fun! :)

I keep going through what you have posted to pick my favorite. It is very hard, you know. :) There are so many neat ones. Today I'd have to say that Red Boots gets my vote. I'll let you know tomorrow if it changes. :)

Also, Seth is the young man holding the chicken in my photo. He is a good friend's son and my grandson's best buddy. My grandson is next to him in the photo. His parents would be fine with you using him as inspiration for a painting. They may even want to buy it!
