New Harmony Sheep and Farmhouse

Finally finished this one up that I started on location. When I pulled up to the farm I wasn't sure what kind of animal was in the field. I thought it had to be sheep, but looked like hairy pigs. Then, as I painted, I noticed how a couple of them looked like miniature buffalo. So, for me they are sheepiguffalo. Pronounced sheepiguffalo. ;)

Blue Shed and Forsythia

Did this one in New Harmony's First Brush of Spring plein air event this past week. Since I didn't place in the competition, it's very easy to second guess the choice of which painting to enter. I keep thinking this is the one I SHOULD HAVE entered. Might not have made any difference though. Either way, I'm happy with this one.

Courthouse Lawn

Here's one I just finished up. I did one last year of the Bradford Pear tree and the corner of the building with flag, but this year I wanted to do another showing more of the lawn and background.
