I am calling this blog "A Day Ahead of Myself," because I am posting two paintings today...I am trying to post one painting a day, but some days are more productive than others. This morning I spent my time resuscitating semi-complete plein air paintings. This one is from our adventures east of here...there is a town that is somewhere between very lightly inhabited and a ghost town. The town is called Hardman and was a major shipping area for sheep in the 1920's. It is a bit eerie...but I suspect if I had made an attempt to talk to people I would have found it fine. Instead I pulled over on one of the perimeter roads and painted this old barn. It was almost dark by the time I finished. Today I just went in and adjusted the sky.
