Still Standing

Recently I have been working on a series of prairies paintings. I really love the subject matter. Having grown up in Saskatchewan, this is very close to my heart.

I love driving through the prairies, as the gentle warm winds blow, stopping often to take photos of sway-back barns, and old sheds...still standing through years of use and changing seasons.
  • start out with a warm background colour
  • I sketch the outlines of the barn, sheds and trees
  • next comes the sky and the clouds
  • at this stage I often forget to take more photos as I get excited about the process, until the final piece is finished
"Still Standing", 12 x 24" acrylic on canvas
