A pair of barns oil 10x30

Acrylics, watercolors, soft pastels, oil pastels, clay monotypes, and mixed medium, somehow were not enough for me. I just HAD to take out the long neglected oil paints buried somewhere in the bottem drawer of one of my cabinets.

I am an impatient painter, and have enjoyed acrylics because I can work fast and intuitive. Paradoxically I found that I enjoy working with oil because I can paint slowly and deliberately. Go Figure!!

I have a weakness for paintings of barns. I think this one helps explain why.

This is really wonderful. I really like the long horizontal format -- perfect for this subject! I've had the urge to try oils lately, too. You've increased the temptation level considerably with this painting!
