An Old Favorite

Tin Roof Barn - $49
Pastel Barn - $200
Joe's Barn Too - SOLD
This barn sits on an old farm property which is now the Joe Kurz Wildlife Management Area in Meriwether County, Georgia.  The landscape around the building has changed a lot over the last four years since I've been coming down here to paint it and little by little the surroundings are disappearing. The acrylic painting, "Tin Roof Barn" is one of my latest versions of my favorite plein aire location and it's more of a stripped-down version of the landscape and barn on a hot, bright day. 

This top right image is a pastel from about 3 1/2 years ago that shows the old fence and trees. As warm and inviting as it looks, it was painted on a very cold and blustery January day and I thought I'd gotten frostbite.

The last image, "Joe's Barn, Too" was painted in oil at some point during the time in between the first two works and gives a sense of the vanishing trees and old English privet which once encircled the building.
