These are a couple of small (8" x 16") studies that I did based on a 10 year old photograph of an old barn near where my grandfather used to farm onions in upstate New York. I did 6 or 7 charcoal drawings and a couple of pastels from the photo first and then I painted these from memory, without referring back to the photo.
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 in a renovated potato house.
