Red Barns

Red Barn, Green Grass 8x10 pastel, copyright 2012

A few weeks ago, this pastel was considered a failure.  Something about it just wasn't right.  It sat in the studio mocking me, daring to me to call it quits and give up.  I moved on, trying to ignore it while working on an oil, recovering from a cold and thinking about spring shows.  Today it was finally decided to put it away for good.  But maybe, with a little touch up here, a little cropping there, it would work.  Guess it's a good thing I gave it another chance.  The title, by the way, was suggested by my son.  Kids are always an excellent resource when you run out of ideas.
