This landscape was inspired by my love of pastoral landscapes of rural life. Old barns and farmhouses have intrigued me since I was a child viewing them along the country roads. I painted this scene as an overcast, quiet landscape from my imagination. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges and it comes ready to hang.
