Barn at Summer's End

Barn at Summer's End

Throughout our counties, the rural barns that I so love are getting embraced by fall's changing colors and lowering light. Here and there bits of bright red foliage poke out against the dulling greens, but we are still weeks from the vibrance of fall's display. Still, the changing light with the sun's lower arc across the sky, sends different shadow patterns across the land - all wonderful to see and admire.

This landscape was sketched late last night after an exhausting day of non-stop teaching followed by several even later meetings. I crawled home to a friend's house to spend the night after dark, and could only manage something a bit quick and unfussed before ending the day. I'm so hoping today is a lot less frenzied and the workday ends before the sun sets.

I hope to catch up soon .... Hope everyone's day is terrific!

Oh my Gosh Lin, your painting is gorgeous and to think you accomplished this after such a long, tiring day. You amaze me, over and over and over. Hope today is a bit quieter for you.
Sending energy your way!
