Gray Afternoon -- Day 2, Painting 2 South Park Plein Air Arts Celebration

Gray Afternoon
Oil  11" x 14"
Day 2, Painting 2 South Park Plein Air Arts Celebration, FairPlay, Colorado
Day 12 of the 30 in 30 Challenge

After lunch, delivered to us out at Bartle Lakes, I went into Jefferson to paint.  Jefferson isn't much more than a cross roads surrounded by ranches.  I thought the barns on this ranch made a great painting.

Every afternoon of the plein air event we turned in 2 framed paintings to the gallery in Fairplay at 4:00.  I think I worked on this piece from about 2 - 3:30, then drove the 20 minutes from Jefferson to Fairplay and framed the piece from the back of my car.  Luckily I had framed my morning painting right before lunch.  Every day was fun but hectic!

I'm contemplating making changes to this painting as it's a bit gray....of course, it was a gray day!  I'll think about it for awhile.

Thank you Hilda. I do think that the barns made a food painting, just a bit gray.

Suzanne, Thanks so much. It was a fun paint out.
