A Light In The Barn by Marriet

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Dark and dusty, painted on the sky describes this painting, from Denver’s Country Road song.

This barn is off Rt. 5 just below Richmond, Virginia. It’s early morning and the glow of dawn is about the farm. Someone is already up and busy. Perhaps putting together presents for Christmas? Name changed from “A Light in the Barn” for country roads challenge.

The morning sun reflects on the snow creating lovely shadows and color.

I started drawing for my son, who was fascinated with it as a child. I took a few classes in colored pencil and watercolor and found the company to be exceptional, and have loved the art world since.
