Gloria J Zucaro's "One Day In March"

My painting today has gone through a complete transformation.  It was much more intense in color, as my paintings seem to be.  But I wasn't satisfied with it because although I love strong color, it wasn't saying what I wanted to remember and tell you about.  
One day last March I was out on some rural back roads taking photos of barns and fields. It was our typical very gray, cold, damp and windy March day. Suddenly I came upon a patch of exposed dried grass and a beautiful old barn with several coats of peeling paint. I loved it immediately because I am partial to pale aqua/blue.  The warmth of the layers of paint brightened up the whole field! 
I am posting to Paint Party Friday.  Thank you Eva and Kristin.  
If I don't see you again until the new year, have a wonderful Christmas, or Holiday of your persuasion.

  5. Stunning! And perfect for the Holiday season. I think your crumbling paint on the barn brings a vibrancy to the grayness of a winter day. Wishing you a happy holiday season. Happy PPF
