Lexington Paint Out

The first two paintings in Lexington last Friday. Possum Hollow Barn, when it was very foggy in the morning, then it lifted . . . so hard to decide  . . . do I change or stay with that view? The back mountain is very pale because of fog, the foreground is in the clear!   9-1/2" x 12-1/2" oil on panel, framed at
This was painted on Plank Road and is of Buffalo Creek, a quiet spot to pull over and paint. Also at Nelson Gallery in Lexington. Thanks to everyone for all your work pulling the show together!

Shag Hill Barn, Lexington, VA

Here are two paintings on Shag Hill I did with my friend Elizabeth Sauder and sorry they are not very good photographs. When you are outside, the lighting that is there is what you get! The bottom one shows how bright it was that day and the top one the clouds rolled in just when I pulled out the camera. Both paintings are at the Nelson Gallery for the month of October.
Thanks to everyone who helped make it a great weekend!
Too bad we don't know how to have fun on these Paint Outs! Cheers!

Lexington Paint Out

Posting these backwards, this is the last painting I did of five (one not completed) in the two days of painting at the Lexington Paint Out with the Nelson Gallery as the host. Bottom photo is at the opening with 24 guest artists and the public invited to the opening. The barn photo was taken when a huge cloud rolled in so you can't see the beautiful light hitting the barn. Painted all day at this site with Elizabeth Sauder (below in pink).
Shag Hill Barn, 11" x 14" oil on canvas, framed $250
