“The Barn” painting

In our One Loudoun neighborhood, there’s a beautiful restored historic red barn that was originally built in 1875. Behind the barn lies Central Park and in front of the barn is a large lawn for crowds to gather during events. My wife and I had some of our maternity photos taken at the barn, as it serves as an eye-appealing backdrop!

This weekend I’ll be starting a new painting of a couple barrels of flowers in front of the red walls of the barn.

One Loudoun Central Park Art in Progress

Now that the weather is warming up, my wife, son and I have been going out to ‘Central Park’ in the neighborhood we live in (One Loudoun). It’s probably the best residential park I’ve seen in Loudoun County. The landscaping is beautiful and the park is very well laid-out. There’s areas for kids to play that are built seamlessly into the landscape, there’s a dog park, there are benches, there’s a lake, and it’s within close walking distance to the downtown plaza area. So, being an Artist, I always find inspiration for paintings when I’m there. So after two years of living here, I finally started my first piece of Central Park. I just finished sketching it out and adding some color, with more color to be painted in. I envision pops of brick red, deep purple hues, dark browns, and a tad bit of orange on the ground, with luminous sunlight shining down.
