Tennessee Tobacco Barn

Seems like it has been a while since I posted any recently completed landscapes. That's because it's been a while since I have completed anything I could post. So here's something, inspired by a striking photo in this month's Tennessee Home and Farm magazine. (The featured photos in this publication are eye-catching and usually give me something to think about -- if not to paint.)

Tobacco barns different from storage or cattle barns in that they are taller and thinner and their sides open up at different levels to help the tobacco dry or "cure." These "flaps" give the barns an unusual visual flavor.

About the painting

15 x 22 inches, Watercolor on Arches 140 CP paper.

This painting is not offered for sale since it is a derivative work from someone else's original work. It is available for a contribution to a charitable organization, however.
