|Wakefield Farm Shed With Dogwoods: Built 1781|
First local plein air of the season, I painted this last Monday at the gorgeous Wakefield Farm. The farm is in my back yard and houses 25 horses. It was built in 1781 and has many of the original structures, including this shed.
I was taken by the beautiful aging grays of the shed's walls against the brilliant pinks, white and apricots of the flowering dogwoods. What a sight! As I painted at least five people came over for pleasant chats and comments. A day that will not soon be forgotten.
The original oil is 5X7" and is on archival linen board. The painting is unframed. This is how the painting would look framed:
Thank you for your interest.
