Re-posting Greenwood Barn, Rose Hill Farm

I changed enough of this painting to decide to re-post it . . . Started this in March, but once a new season starts, you must either work from memory or wait for the previous season to roll around again. All the bales where gone by the second time!

Animal Workshop, FUN!

I took an animal painting workshop this weekend with Nancy Bass @ Beverly Street Studio School in Staunton, and had a blast! Twelve students and we painted from photographs. I did a warm and cool painting of a deer, our neighbor's chicken, and a calf and a cow! (These are not quit done yet . . . ) I learned a lot, and will paint more animals when the weather turns bad this winter . . . check out Nancy's website

Blue Ridge Overlook, Wintergreen, VA

I have been wanting to paint this panoramic painting from this spot, long and thin, for a while. I have painted up here several times, but I stretched this canvas with the Blue Ridge Overlook in mind. I want to thank Julie and David for letting me stay the night before hand, so I could get two days of painting done. Will be taking this painting to the Wintergreen Labor Day Show next month. 18" x 60" oil on canvas, framed,  $1,250  SOLD thanks Mark!
