South of Town
This is a Water Color of what had been a very nice farm just south of Mentone. Although I prefer to paint landscapes Plein Air this day was just to cold with a strong north wind blowing and snow on the ground to work on location. I took several photos and did this in the studio. The barn is showing its age and the brick how is rumored to be really cold in the winters. Had a friend that lived here years ago and she said the paste froze on the walls one day when she was trying to hang wallpaper. The painting is 11x22 on 300 lb Fabrino Rough paper.
