1894 (sold)

"1894" by Stephanie Berry
Once in a while a painting goes really well.  This was one of those.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  Odd thing is, I usually go for lots of color which this lacks.  This old barn probably won't last much longer but it is a classic New England barn with a cupola which can't be seen from this angle.  Someday I'll get photos of that and do another "portrait" of this barn. (reminder-clicking on the photo enlarges it for a better view)

This indeed a really wonderful one, Stephanie! Once again you captured the atmosphere very well. I love the lack of color palette. Excellent work. Have a lovely weekend!

THIS painting is fabulous.
I love the strength of your design with the dark snowy sky to set it all off.

Brrr! You captured the winter cold and atmosphere so perfectly in this painting. I love everything about it too.

This is wonderful - so solid and moody....reminds me of an Andrew Wyeth painting. I always love your paintings of structures and landscape.
