Old Barn - Finished

So I've been painting for almost 2 years now (off and on) and realized I really haven't completed any of the oil paintings I've started.  I've completed a few oil pastels, but no oil paintings.  So today I finished up a little one I'd been working on...the Old Barn.  I received some great critique up on and heeded that advice, removing part of the fence that passed in front of the barn.  My final struggle was how to paint grass.  I'm pretty happy with how the grass ended up, but certainly much more to learn there.  One take away in doing the foreground really helps to paint the grass in the foreground with a loaded brush!  So I'm calling this one done...hope you like it!  Canvas board 8"x10"
