The Art Blog of Rhett Regina Owings. I am an artist working in the Central Valley of California. I enjoy painting many different things that tickle my fancy! I also make embellished paper cranes and paper crane earrings. Thank you for visiting.
After working on my commissioned painting most of the afternoon, I feel like it is finished. But I will let it rest tonight and look at it again with fresh eyes in the morning. If you compare it to the last post, you will see that I decided I did not like the two mounds of hay and thought it would look better with just one. So I painted the left one out, added more of the walnut orchard and gave the viewer a peek into the distant hills. I completely re-worked the barn and I am so much happier with it it. It matches so many barns I see here in the Central Valley of California. I worked on the trees to the right and the foreground as well. Lots of other small changes as well. Now to sign it and let the paint rest and dry.
