Autumn Storm over Farmer's Field

I love autumn the best of all seasons.  A few weeks ago, I was totally inspired by a photograph of a brightly coloured red barn with a stormy sky brewing behind it.  Here is my depiction:

11x14 Acrylic on canvas

I decided to paint a black border around it and add the black corners - just like the old photo corners my mom used to use to keep photos in her albums.

I totally love this painting, sometimes I can't believe how well my vision translates onto canvas.  I hope you enjoy it, too!

Have a great week.

Do you know what Paint Party Friday is?? You should link up with that group. I just found them a few weeks ago. Great group of artists linking a weekly update about their paintings. It's inspiring. If you can't find it, send me a note and I will send you the link. I would paste it here, but I don't want that to trigger a spam detect thingy. lol

Oh that is wonderful. I've been looking for a painting with a bit of red for my living room mantel - I hadn't thought of barns. Thanks for the inspiration.
