Joplin Barn

Joplin Barn
11 x 14

I went down the street this morning and snapped this picture..  And with a little bit of "Artistic License" this painting came together.  I love the truck in this painting.. I was debating with myself whether to paint the back on it, or just do a standard pickup look, but I'm glad I went with the actual truck.  I have set a goal of one painting a day for ten days.. Wish me luck.. I have to get ready for the next show in McCall.  It's the 17th and 18th of September, and it's called Art On The Lake.. I'm pretty excited about this show.. It's a lot bigger than the last one I did, so we will have a lot more exposure.  But with a great show, comes a great amount of work!!  Already feeling the pressure.  My husband told me last night, as I was sharing my anxiety with him, "Don't paint for shows, or for the money you could make.  Just paint because you love to paint."  Good words from a good man!
