I painted some small works for the Writers/Artists weekend at Abanakee Studios and this is one of them. We have a few barns in town that are very picturesque and this is one of them. I took some artist license with the actual barn. It's 5x7.
This weekend I demonstrated and sold pastels at a Writers/Artists weekend at the Abanakee Gallery in Indian Lake, NY. Usually the weather in summer is wonderful, 70-80 degrees and cool, but this weekend was unusual. Saturday's weather almost hit 90 and Sunday afternoon the rains came - a deluge! But, people did come and it turned at to be an enjoyable two days. I always get the question about painting with chalk, but I think, after I explain the medium, people tend to understand. This painting, from a photo I took last year on the Moose River Plains, was one I did as a demonstration.
