There are a number of outbuildings and barns at Elodie Farms (www.elodiefarms.com) and this old barn sits off the main gathering area. A number of weeks back when C and I visited the farm, Dave, the owner, showed us this building and I fell in love with its rustic, aging exterior. I snapped a few photos when the shadows were particularly pretty and finally spent a couple of days painting it.
I'm not sure if I'm done with it -- seeing it on the screen makes me think that the foliage needs some darkening, and yet when I look at the original, there is a greater variation (including darks) in the foliage -- so I've put the painting away a while to see what I think when I return to it.
For now, it's back to work after almost 2 weeks -- mercy, I did enjoy being away from all the 'have-to's!' LOL
