Paper Whites at Barber Farm

Paper Whites at Barber Farm 12x24

12″ x 24″ Oil on gesso coated burlap stretched with painted edges

Barber Farm is a historic Land Trust farm near Salisbury, NC.  Plein Air Carolina has painted there several times.  Spring is especially lovely when the Paper Whites and Daffodils are in bloom.  The painting is framed in an old barn wood frame that I found at The Ugly Duckling, a salvage store behind Rail Walk  Studios and Gallery.

Morrison Plantation Barn

Morrison Plantation Barn 12x16

12″ x 16″ Oil on RayMar panel

My husband noticed this old barn behind an auto parts store.  The following weekend we drove over to Mooresville, NC, so I could see it, too.  I love how the abandoned barn just seems to be sitting there among the colorful grasses and weeds enjoying the beautiful day.

Lakeside Path

Lakeside Path 9x12

9″ x 12″ Oil on RayMar panel

This path circles a small lake at Dan Nicholas Park not far from my home.  It was a gray day, but I know how the sun falls behind those trees along the path.  So I made the sun shine with paint.
