#97 - Barn Yard

I passed this place on the way home from work the other day and stopped to snap a picture, I like the angled shadows and the dappled sun in the foreground.

Plein Air

On Memorial Day weekend I headed out on a beautiful afternoon and set-up near this picturesque old shed. As I was cleaning up the owner stopped by and asked "What the heck are you doing?" He looked even more confused when I told him how much I liked his old shed and showed him my painting.
