I've been wanting to paint this stone barn at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation for years, and finally got my chance! There's so much to paint there that it just took me awhile to get to this one. Now I'd like to do a series of them! It proved to be a wonderful and very challenging subject.

Love the colors in the foreground! I think this would be wonderful in pastels. (hint, hint)

You know...you may not believe this, but....When I first arrived at the location, I was going to do it in pastels. It's one of those scenes that really does cry out for pastels. However, I FORGOT TAPE! So, I couldn't tape the pastel paper to the drawing board! Grrrr! Maybe next time. :)
