Farmstead

Thank you for your well wishes ... I got some much needed sleep last night, and the coughing is down to management proportions .. thank you!!

I had a hard time finding something to paint last night -- finally resorted to choosing one of the old photo references I carry in my travel kit for just such times so I could get my 'practice' in .... Though I don't think this is an image from North Carolina, it could have easily been. These rural barns and views are what I love about where I live.

Temps have fallen again and we're supposed to have four or five days of steady rain ... Good for the soil and plants .. but mercy.....I'm going to enjoy the sunshine while I can!

WOW. I too love the country scenes. There's just something about old barns that reminds me of New England. I love the whole composition but especially your soft trees and detailed barn. Glad you are feeling a bit better and hope you continue to mend.

It's wonderful how you manage to capture the essence of 'country charm' in your paintings. I have a feeing these lovely barns are going to disappear more and more in the near future.

This is a particularly nice scene and you did it so very well :)

Hope you feel completely better soon!
