Tuesday Morning at the Park

oil on canvas panel

My painting friends and I met at a park in town.  It has a beautiful lake but most of us chose to
paint one of the buildings.

This was a plein air painting which was finished up in the studio.

I did paint the lake later in the studio.  See that painting at the next post.

Poetry in Light

Painting a barn is always a fun project.  All look somewhat weathered to me and most look a little
 (or a lot) 
rundown.  Most painters agree that a not so beautiful scene will often make the
best painting....although I don't think I can put the reason in words.

I painted this one with my plein air group but also did more work in my studio,  Once I get it away from the subject matter I can be more objective and often see something that I want to "improve."

I am including a photo of the barn from where I was standing.  It's always fun to see
what was really there.
