White in August

14" x 21"





White barns are not that common, so this one caught my eye as it basked in the sun of a summer day. A little worn, a little grayed but to my eyes still striking as it hung on the hillside overlooking green pastures.

Painting this barn was, for me, like painting a portrait. I wanted to do more than show the barn. I wanted to capture its soul. Would you like to know more about how I thought of that challenge as an artist, and created a painting that was realistic, but more? Read my newsletter "Portrait of a White Barn" here.

All of my works are professionally matted and framed, using the highest quality glass. Please note that the dimension above are for the image only; the framed work is larger. You can contact me for a description and photo of the painting fully framed.
