On June 12 I painted plein air on the grounds at the Shiloh Museum in Springdale, Arkansas. It was part of an event coordinated between Interform Arts and Shiloh for the Assembly project, which aimed to highlight the work of all kinds of local artists throughout the month of June. I thought I might get plenty of paintings done during that day, but managed to complete only one. For that one, I focused on the hay loft doors of Cooper’s Barn.
At first I thought I might paint the whole barn. But then I remembered I only had a small canvas to work on, so I tried to focus on a small area. The hay loft doors were interesting with the hay hook hanging in them. So that’s what I zoomed in on to paint.
This is the first of several 4 x 6 paintings. Their smaller size allows me to offer more affordable entry points to original art featuring these unique and special Ozark pigments. You can see all of my art at my online portfolio. Thank you for reading!
