8x10 inch original oil painting
This painting began with a small rough sketch to establish the composition and patterns of lights and darks. The sketch served as a valuable guide as I painted the canvas, helping to maintain the initial feeling I had planned to capture. I particularly liked the weathered wood and occasional missing planks of barn siding, which suggested the title for this piece.

By the way, in yesterday’s blog post I mentioned that if you’re an artist who hasn’t yet tried painting outdoors from nature, I strongly encourage you to give it a try. There’s nothing like plein air painting to make your work come alive. You don't need lots of expensive equipment like a French easel to get started. I can tell you how to get set up without spending a cent. Many viewers have emailed me for the information, and the offer still stands. Let me know if you’re interested.
