Swayback Barn, 11x14 Acrylic

Hanging now in the Westport Rivers Show through September 10. This is just a plein air sketch (1 hour) done yesterday on the Cape with Denise & Phyllis when we went to check out the Cape Cod Art Ass'n Juried show (from which I was rejected :P). It was a good show and the ice cream cone which followed sure took the sting out of the rejection! Then, after determining that the beach was way too windy, we stumbled upon this lovely (in my opinion - I could have bought the property and moved in in a heartbeat) old 1/2 cape with a swaybacked barn. We were all 'taken' with the setting and quickly determined that nobody lived in the house, so we set up to paint! I'll also upload a photo of the barn. Yes, I 'extracted' colors, but I think I'm just seeing this way these days! "Doctor!!!?"
