My early years were spent on a small farm in Illinois, so when I see old weathered barn siding it brings back nostalgic memories of those years in the countryside. The challenge of this painting was to contrast the textures of fruit and leaves against the weathered siding of old barn siding. Peeling paint provided a pattern to enhance the composition and the early morning sun added interesting directional shadows.
