Through the Barn
When I got into my very first gallery, a seasoned artist took me aside and said he liked my work. But that he could tell I was painting from photographs. This guy (Gordon) gave me my very first plein air easel and sent me packing. He also gave me a pep talk, which included suggesting that even though one could paint a beautiful trash can, it wouldn't sell. Well, that's a long story to say - this view of the barn is a little ... odd, and maybe, a little like a trash can? But I really like it. So, I'm posting it, but I'm going to start the bidding at $1.
