"No Shade for Chickens" SOLD

 Oil on linen on panel, 6.5 x 8.5 inches
When I began this plein air painting, the ceramic chickens were what appealed to me the most. But they turned out to be such a small part of the composition and my attention quickly turned to the red smokehouse. The irregularity of its clapboards became very interesting. And, yes, you might recognize this as the same smokehouse I've painted before at my great-aunt Armin's farm.
