THE SHERFY BARN, GETTYSBURG, 16x20 oil by Sharon Benner

The Sherfy farm is surrounded by fields and was painted from a cloudy day photo.  In present day the barn sits very close to the Chambersburg Pike, but I took some liberties and put in a suggestion of a dirt road next to the barn as it probably was during the battle.  See more paintings at www.sharonbenner.com

This is a great painting, Sharon. The barn is outstanding - the color and shadows are right on!
