Commissions are new for me, and I’ve learned that it takes a lot of effort
to satisfy myself as I work on these projects. For this particular commission,
my client wanted a painting of a barn in Rutland Town, Gerdon Farm, that
I have painted several times. I wanted a fresh look and introduced myself
one of the neighbors whose home had a great view of the massed buildings.
I painted plein air to start, and then slowly built up the layers of color to
capture the backlit buildings’ resonating shadows.

The light promised so much.
