Longview Barns

I absolutely LOVE returning to the Longview Barns to paint with Summit Art, for a quick paint and party by the lake.  It's been at least 15 years since I've painted the historic Longview Farm, and not things have changed!  The old buildings that once I toured with other Summit Art artists are more boarded up, with new vintage style housing all around.  And still, they have such presence in the landscape.  When other artists were painting comfortably by the Pergola, I just HAD to go paint the barns, they were calling me.  As I finished this one, I framed it in the car and turned it in early, because I already had my eye on another scene, and didn't want to risk missing the deadline!  I'm happy to get a mention from the judge, and it was fun to visit with the new owners of this painting, too!  Painting number 4250 in 4250 days.
