Day 3 - White Washed
What a wet day... After a nice breakfast with friends I spent the morning searching out a subject to paint. There were a few obstacles such as melting, dirty snow, rain, slush rain, overcast gray skies, rain (did I say rain...) Painting in snow isn't all that bad, but rain... that's a different story. I decided that I had to find a place inside to paint. I've painted often in barns, being a farm kid. Not only is it dry, but the filtered light is often beautiful. I started painting this piece with smooth brush strokes, but soon found that leaving the brush strokes more pronounced gave it warmth and a needed texture. Tomorrow we are back to snow... ah, I love western New York. "White Washed" 8" x 6" Oil on gessobord

This is absolutely perfect. Love the light and the sense of a warm feeling. Excited to be in the 30in30 too.

Thank you, CheyAnne! I'll be looking for your artwork in the 30 in 30. Good luck!

Pull up a chair, put up your feet and listen to a few stories while the paint dries.
