Red Barn On A Sunny Day and other paintings

Red Barn On A Sunny Day is an oil painting by Bridgette Guerzon Mils

Red Barn On A Sunny Day, oil 14×11 inches

We are now nearing the end of the third month of this year and I have been pretty quiet on here, which doesn’t necessarily mean I haven’t been painting. Sometimes I just feel like being quiet. Or hibernating. When I’ve been able to get in the studio I have been working on some landscapes and barns and using oils on canvas. It’s just been the mood I’ve been in.

When I finished the red barn above I showed it to my daughter who is now 14. She said her favorite part is how I did the leaves on the tree. My favorite part is the pink triangle. I also really liked working on the big shadow that the tree cast on the ground.

This photo above is of the paintings I have been working on. The bottom right of the tree isn’t done yet, but I added it to the wall so I can remember to continue it soon when I can. I had to switch over to encaustic this past week. I have a few deadlines coming up and need to get to it.

I came across this quote, and I was like, yeah, facts. So simple, but so easy to overcomplicate.

“When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field, or whatever. Merely think, here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow.” – Claude Monet
