"Yellow Tractor" Painting Today

This is a continuation from yesterday ... from my outing at Francie's farm. The barn, the backdrop, I believe she said dates to 1860 ... and the light streams in from spaces between the boards.  I love the contrast there, between the manicured gardens and behind the scenes machinery and working parts of the place. There are a ton of places to set up one's easel there.

It's varnishing day, so a few pieces are springing back to life. One I thought you'd enjoy, that you haven't seen for a while, is "Coconut Cake." I think it will be accompanying me to the Artists' Atelier (the studio I share with 15 other artists at 1144 Walker Road, Suite G, Great Falls, VA) tomorrow where I'll be hanging out all afternoon.

Thanks, Doris. I'm really enjoying myself. I was anxious to see what painting would be like after my 100 Faces project ... what I would want to paint and do, etc. I guess I still want to paint everything and doing so daily makes me realize how much is possible.
