Logan County Relic

I have been trying to paint every day - this is a small painting I did this evening from a photo I took recently in Logan County.  As everyone knows, I love old barns - especially "falling down" barns.  It is so sad that barns will soon be a thing of the past, so I am trying to paint as many of the old barns as I can in this area.

The painting is 10" x 10" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano-Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

You give these old buildings new life with your choice of colors :)

Barb this is a lovely piece of art - looks like so many barns in my area. You do know your way around when you are painting them. Thanks for sharing.

Rhonda - thank you so much for mentioning the colors because I really extended myself in this and used colors I normally wouldn't have chosen. It worked! Yeah!

Debbie - are you also in Ohio?I wasn't sure...I was raised in Cleveland, but I have spent all my married life in rural Ohio - so I am very familiar with it's barns.
Thanks for your comments.
