As I said, I was meeting with a friend to paint "en plein air". This is the result. We found this great old barn just down the road from her house. It definitely has had better days but it is still here and still standing. There is such a great character about old barns. They bring about a curiosity of the people who lived and worked the farm, the kids that played there, the animals it sheltered. The day was perfect, the companionship, the surroundings and the joy of doing what you know you're supposed to be doing.
