Back to the Country

Barns are a passion for me.  This is one of the reasons I enjoy going to Montana every summer.  There are so many beautiful barns, many a hundred years old or better.  I have just recently found a beautiful barn near my home in Granbury.  Maryann Brunner and I went to the location and painted one day in February.  The gate was locked, no one at home, so we painted from the driveway.  The day was warm and sunny.  Within minutes after we started painting, the day turned cloudy and misty.  I tried to capture the mood in my painting.  I just finished a studio painting from my plein air sketch.  I would really like your critiques and recommendations.

This is a photo of the scene.
