The Barn at Afton

I've been itching to paint a landscape and thought I'd go back to the images I took while down in St. Francisville.  This barn is situated on what is left of the Afton Plantation which is now a huge botanical garden.  I remember the day I took this hot and the humidity was so high.  They were also in a drought even though the flood gates had been opened on the levees, and miles and miles of land and homes were underwater.  Anyway, here is a painted version of the image.

We are having an awesome day today.  I actually have the house open and there is a cool breeze coming in, and I'm off to babysit the grand kids.  I hope you are having a lovely day.
