I prefer to paint Landscapes and Florals, so when a neighbor bought a couple of Poppy paintings I was very happy as paintings tend to pile up in the studio.
The neighbor and I talked about my process ( I never seem to tire of that ) It was evident she had some art knowledge.
She was getting around to furnishing the house and wanted paintings of a Barn and sheds in the neighborhood around the corner where we buy fresh produce.
Good thing it was a favorite subject and as she and I both loved the barn paintings of Georgia O'Keefe, I suspended my barn painting prejudice and agreed to look into the matter.
Georgia O'Keefes barns are simple abstract images of great shapes . She works in Oil Pastel. My barns will be in Watercolor.
Time will tell if I like them when I am done.
This is a challenge as I have to invent a tecnique that gives my a surface that is almost opaque.
I am even courting using OilStick and Watercolor combine.
This is just the "fiddling around " period. I found some scrap paintings left undone last Feb.
This is a very small piece 6x7 Corn Shed
Thinking about more corn detail in oil stick
A larger work not finished. I need to put in a sky that covers the blue under color.
