16x20" Make-up Painting
I recently framed this make-up painting. (I am showing it before I put the glass in to avoid glare.)
It is of a very old barn in the area which belongs to elderly Mr. Scudder. He asked me if I was with the "tax department" when he drove up in his pick-up and saw me taking photos of it from the road from many angles. I said, "No, I was just admiring his barn, and I hoped to make a painting of it." I liked the way the light was hitting on the fence overgrown with vines. He then told me a neighbor stores his hay in it, but otherwise it isn't used for much. And that he was born up the road. I think he said he was 92. And that "he can still get around on a tractor."
Today a very nice couple came in and picked it out to take home.
