Tree Shadows, oil on linen, 24"x36"

When I saw this barn I was captivated by the play of light and shadows from the trees. There is so much foliage around this structure that you can barely see it during the summer. Some of the foliage I removed in the painting. One of the beautiful things about winter is all the bare trees reveal certain visual treasures that are covered up during the summer. I did a small field study of this barn last winter, and then worked up numerous sketches before I finally settled on a composition I liked. This is my first completed painting for 2013.

I like how you can see through the building.

Nice to see your work on line.
