IF WALLS COULD TALK, 6X8, Original Oil, Canvas Board

Sometimes I wonder about the stories connected to these old barns.  If you remember my last post, I have been vacationing in North Carolina for a few weeks and returned with plenty of images.  So I proclaim this to be "Barn Week" at the studio.

On this one I wanted to work with a purple/green color combination and also to try to get some nice loose strokes in the scene.

I'll be listing this in the Daily Paintwork's auction today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love your palette Carol. We don't see many barns in Southern California so I am looking forward to this series.

I love old barns too Carol. You've captured them beautifully. I cry when they get torn down, which is all too often here.
