Yellow Jacket Barn

Please contact me if interested
We just got back from a trip to Durango, Co. to visit our son. Every time we've driven down there, I've looked at this barn and thought it would make a great painting. This trip I had the opportunity!
My husband and son decided they were going to learn about wild turkeys. So, after studying wild turkeys on the internet, they decided to go looking for them. Turkeys come out at sunrise, so we were up before the crack of dawn and driving away! Little did I know that the "spot" was right by this barn, near the town of Yellow Jacket. So, while they were off in the woods, I set up across a field from this barn. Yellow Jacket is not really a town, it's one empty building, but, there is a town sign by the side of the road. I hope to do a large piece from this study.
While much of the rest of the country is having a warm spring, it was a very cool morning. I was out here about 7 and it was barely 40. I was painting in my winter jacket and hat.
To get to Durango, you have to drive over Wolf Creek Pass. Thought I'd include pictures of the pass this week!
