(Private Collection) This painting was done during the spring of 2005. It is actually the third attempt at this subject matter, the first being done a year before and the second in the Fall of 2004. The scene is based on a view from the intersection of Leland Hill and Pierce Roads in Sutton, MA where I used to run. This particular intersection has yielded several images. The actual barn has a row of windows across the front and the house is much closer. I was more interested in capturing the light and time of day than the barn itself.
I am a full time artist, originally from Massachusetts, currently living in northern Maine. I work primarily in oils and pastel, and occasionally watercolor. I offer instruction in drawing and painting at my studio, which is in an old renovated potato barn.
