  4. Thanks Martha, Claire, and Padmaja. I'm getting into these barns. It was late afternoon when I took the picture so I had a wonderful shadow on the road.

  7. Hi Hilda!... Obviously we share a reverance for heritage and "things wooden".

    Love the pastel treatment of your colour... really adds to the wistfulness of the subject!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  14. I am visiting your blog for the first time. You do beautiful work in pastel. The weathered barn has wonderful shadows and color. These old structures always catch my eye when I see them, I wonder what their history was. Well done.

  17. Thank you Liana for visiting and your nice comment. Yes, I think that the oldness of the building is what I enjoy painting..I see so many colors on one board alone.
