This is the barn I started at the workshop and finished at home. I really didn't like it. I had the doors lighter so that you could see into the barn and it was too busy. I darkened the doors, darken the sky, added ore shadow and voila! Now I like it for where I am in my painting. I learned a lot with this one. DH helped me learn that all lines should be vertical even when the horizontal is not horizontal.

This is the painting that I did at the Robert and Sharon Long Workshop. I loved the workshop and I loved the Long's. They were warm and generous. Our group put out some masterpieces. I thought that I would be the "baby" of the group since I have ony been painting seven months but I wasn't. I learned so much about mixing colors, glazing, shadows/light, and confidence/competence.

I painted my sister Barbara's house for her birthday. I am so glad she liked it! Her house has beautiful new grey siding and I struggled getting the right essence of grey. Oh well, she liked it and that feels good.
