I'M PAINTING MORE BARNS!
I had been painting the nostalgia series to take to Kentucky for the Art Show, but these paintings have been so popular, I needed to paint some more! I'm so glad I had them photographed for prints! This time I painted another "Rock City" sign on the barn and a shaded dirt road leading into it, but that is all the paintings have in common. This barn is not painted, just weathered gray wood with the sign on the roof instead of on the side, and I added sheep grazing in the front of the barn. I made it a fall scene with some pretty trees in the background and behind the barn. Overall, it is a peaceful little farm scene that is very nostalgic. I only have four photos of this one but then it is a simple painting.
It was fun painting these sheep! I kept them simple by just painting shapes and grouping several together so it wasn't necessary to paint all of each animal. These are black-faced sheep with black legs. I'm not sure of the breed, but I was sure to add a black one! And I wanted some in sunlight and some in shade, one of them is half shaded and half sunlight. For fun, I put one looking into the barn.
I have the final painting below. See if you can tell what changes I have made (there are at least 7) and I hope you enjoy the sheep painting as much as I did!
