The Red Barn (oil on canvas, 2005)

(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.
