Pipestem Utopian Dream 2

Today was my day to paint with the "Muses." Theresa brought a delicious pumpkin roll to celebrate my birthday which was on the 23rd of Sept. and we pigged out with dulce de latte coffee. Yum!

 
Today I revisited my photos from Pipestem, West Virginia and decided to paint this shed as my 2nd painting from the "series"- from the photos I took that day2 years ago at the abandoned village just down the mountain from Pipestem Resort in southern West Virginia. This little oil is on a canvas panel - 8"x8". Now that I have a chance to look at it on the monitor I can see that it is too busy for my taste - so I imagine there will be some changes in it's future! :)

Oh but I adore the wonderful woods with the yummy darks!
I think maybe you could fade the edges out a little it make the dark woods close to the shred be more important . Otherwise it is so good...wonderful old wood.

I think it is beautiful as it is, but that said, Barb, I know it will be beautiful no matter what.
