Barren County Barn was among the choices you all chose from my favorite landscape photos.
I completed this during the cold and rainy days of early spring and finished during the rain that continued all day today.
My compositional challenge was deciding what to do with all those foreground corn stalks. I decided to keep them abstract, loose, and just as out of focus of how our own eyes would see a scene drawn to the tree in sunlight at right and the distant barn.
I like the simplicity of this scene. It is surprising how challenging it is to simplify a scene. Notice how the trees in the distance are suggested, the edges are kept soft, and the value turns almost as light as the sky.
This was done on a 16x20 inch canvas.
