New Work : “Jade Skies” 36 x 36
While recently on a drive through Harvard, MA–a beautiful small rural town I’d never been to–I came across this old farm with a main barn and an adjacent long barn that disappeared behind a huge expanse of hedge. Raised on slight knoll, the main barn seemed somewhat smaller than it should, due, perhaps, to the bigness of the shrubbery in the foreground. What stuck with me about the scene was the hint of green in the sky that late afternoon. It was that green I wanted as the subject of the piece. Ultimately, though, I don’t think it is, though it did become the title.
