In the Barn Yard

I LOVE painting the beautiful barns of Iowa, and this beauty is in Morris Park, Stockport, Iowa.  My first time here, it was fun to go inside the various old buildings, set up with historic interiors.  After a thorough look, I settled on this sweeping scene of a favorite barn style.  There were MANY gnats rising from the grounds - and I had to wrap my face with my insect shield to keep those bugs out of my ears, nose, and mouth - and they still got in my eyes!  I hear they are Buffalo gnats - and I could do without them!  I powered through, and the painting was worth it, but oh boy I need to find a deterrent!  Love the pastoral landscapes here!  Painting number 3789 in 3789 days.
