Challenge Painting Thirteen
by Ruth Andre
The red metal barn on our property is a guide post for travelers that come out our way. I hear people say it is just a mile after the red barn or turn left after passing the red barn. While we were in Missouri we would tell people how to get to town and one directive was to turn left when you see the 5 horses. Road marks change over the years and it is like a new land is created. I am enjoying painting this Challenge 100 Series of paintings. For some reason this painting really caught my eye. There were several changes and an almost will to stop painting but in the end I continued. The painting feels quiet and lively, a nice combination. Challenge Painting Thirteen.
