Taylor's Trail - Loomis California

Since I have struggled with the barn painting..... I really needed something new that I was excited about. I picked a large.... 36 x36 canvas. For reference.... I used my plein air version and a few digital images that I had taken while attending Mac Hanson's workshop a couple of summers ago in Loomis California. It was a beautiful park but the weather was a miserable! The temperature stayed around the high 90's/100....a real heat wave, so I took shelter in the shade. :D

Laundry Day

I redid "Barn With Blue Door" so many times these last couple of months! You know the story.... fix a little, adjust a little, then you realize that you have a totally new painting! I have about 6 layers of sky..... and who knows how many times I changed the grass... road.. barns.. etc.
