"Shasta Barn Opus 2"



(Bid On This Painting)
This will take you over to eBay



Since moving to Mt Shasta, I have been in love with all of the history that surrounds this magnificent peak. It is located near several old logging towns, and it is the main route for the Southern Pacific Railroad. It also boasts that it has the best trout fishing in the country. The land is rich and fertile, and the people that live here are friendly and welcoming.

Shasta Barn Opus 2 is the second barn a series of six paintings that depict the many unique barns near Mt Shasta. It is exciting for collectors to collect a series, but it can be challenging for the artist to paint one. In my title, I use the reference “Opus” as homage to my love of music. The word Opus is used to number works in a musical score; I use it to number the works in a series of paintings. You might want to paint a series of paintings to challenge yourself.

There is no magic in creating a painting. What magic other artists have in their work is something they create within their work. Your challenge is to discover what you need to do in your own paintings. Painting is a process of lessons learned. Learning to paint happens step by step, painting by painting, by slowly avoiding the mistakes you made in your last painting, and repeating your triumphs on your next painting. With time, you will start to develop a consistent pattern. This becomes your style, and that, is your magic.

If you try to learn to paint by using a method, using proven strokes, and color recipes that generate a consistent outcome, you will find that you can repeat that method, and your paintings will look the same every time. And, that my friend, would lack magic and would be boring.
I hope that we can build a community of artists that can share information with each other.If you know of any artists that might appreciate being included, let them know about this blog.
I hope to offer more painting tips as this conversation continues.
