Red Barn In Winter by Julie Riker

8x10


 I painted along McCormick Road on Sunday morning.
It was great to be out but I realized I had not done this kind of painting from observation in a long time and was feeling like I couldn't concentrate due to the cold.  The forecast was 40 degrees...they were wrong...I was unprepared and my feet were frozen.
Perhaps the gloves, cold conditions, and stiff paint consistency led to the looseness of this painting.

Sue - I love walking along this stretch of road.
Julie - this is the Walsh Farm and the SVPAP can paint there again this year. We just need to give her a heads up.
