Red Barn in the Valley
Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 8 in.
This red barn is one of my favorite subjects in our neighborhood, that I love to paint. I've painted this barn before from a different angle. My goal for this piece was to simplify the composition and exaggerate the colors slightly to create an illusion that I'm standing close to the barn. Actually, I was quite far away from it, so I couldn't the see many details. I enjoy painting building structures, as well as natural landscapes. I think it would be fun to do a series of simple paintings like this.
