Sevier County Barn
9X12, Oil on Panel
A little yellow house off in the distance beckoned me down this dirt road south of the town of DeQueen. As I approached the house, I came to the conclusion is was deserted but I also noted that there was no convenient place to set up to paint it. The road made a 90° turn just past the house and there was a gate into a field right at the apex of the corner. This gave me a great place to pull off the road and set up but I felt I was too close to the house to paint it. There were numerous little barns in the field but this pair of red barns caught my eye. I had to fight the changing light and odor from a nearby hog farm that was cleaning out a barn but I wound up with a result I liked straight out of the field with no studio work.
I am gearing up for a major show that starts at the end of the month. I have mostly completed my Painting Arkansas project but need some clean up work. Stay tuned for the remaining counties!
