Sue's Shed, 8x10, Oil

This was the plein air piece that was my favorite from my Marshfield paint out!  At this point in the day a few other painting buddies had arrived and we staked out this shed in the backyard of where I was staying - positioning ourselves around it.  My favorite part is the buoys hanging on the shed.  Or maybe the shadow from the overhang of the roof. It just flowed... bing, bang, boom.

This painting is not a Daily Painting per se, and I am reserving it for a summer art show entry.

  7. This is outstanding, along with your beach painting, clearly 2 of my favorites from you!!! I love when an artist can take a very ordinary scene, as in the shed, and turn it into a stellar painting; very well done! Oh, and isn't it nice when the paint just does what it's supposed to do?

    What fun Kelley. You packed a lot into that little painting and kept it spontaneous. I especially like the warm ground color peeking out around the edges.

  15. This is so painterly, I can understand what you mean by: it just flowed! The painting appears like that. It will also be easy for anyone to live with on a wall!
