Red Barn

4x12, oil on stretched canvas

I had trouble getting the photo to show the colors correctly.  The roofs are more blue gray and not green.

When I taught elementary school art, I could always get a delighted look or sound when I gave out paper cut to different size than the standard.  High schoolers, who are not nearly so transparent, also liked it.  How did I know?  I taught high school for about 20 years, so I suppose it was intuition.

This was my chance to use a different format for a change.  There was a big sale on canvas several months ago and I bought, not exactly with abandon,  quite a few different sizes.
