Local inspiration for “Stone Wall”
The inspiration for “Stone Wall” (36 x 36, oil on canvas, April 2014) is a barn at the top of Walnut Hill, about a half-mile walk from home. I pass this barn almost daily, and have sworn each time that I would paint it, and it’s interesting placement, carved into the side of slope. It’s one of those structures that looks different at different times of day–situated high on a hill, where the sun’s effect on it’s local color changes hourly.
