I went out to sketch today, since I didn't make it yesterday with my sketch buddies. This old barn was right outside of a little town not to many miles from me. I have a few acres not far away so I'm out that direction frequently. But this time something about the light and textures stopped me, so here's my subject.
But I was really impressed to see there was sugar pine timbers in this old place. For those of you who are not a carver or wood sculptor....this is the mother load to find. Yes, the sugar pine is still there...not my barn but it's nice to know.
Anyway I had to move the silo from up the hill down behind my barn and put a little extension on it. You know how all this goes and then of course I finally got to do the fun part of slinging paint.......God I love being able to get out again.
For those of you who don't know me the answer to that question in the back of your mind is probably..."No those are not local colors, Ricky seldom uses them." But I have fun using my artistic license.......don't you?
I probably won't post for a few days cause' Tuesday is the start of "CHEMO" week again.
