Peek-a-boo Barn

I painted this in an afternoon as part of my continuing "painting-a-day" goal. The colors were on the brink of being muddied, so I stopped. Working wet is very challenging at times--it requires a greater precision of color versus knowing you're going to go back and paint another day when it's dry. Defining the darks and lights involves applying a lot of paint and then not messing with it anymore! Some days I need to hide the brushes from myself!

  1. Hi Lauren,

    I just visited Nina's and bought this piece. Love it!!! I'll be hanging it in my DC rowhouse and bringing some beautiful Cali home with me.


  2. Hi Julie!
    Thank you so much for purchasing my painting. It means so much to me that my little barn will be traveling home with you! You made my day!
