Still Standing 16 x 20 oil

 This is a scene I drove by many times and finally got down to painting it. This one went thru many changes: The barn was empty so I add bales of hay inside. The ground was filled with yellow flowers but it was just too much so I cut them way back. The fence post had barbed wire but I didn't like it so I dded the square type which I feel added a lot to the composition. I also added the gate at far right and somewhat of a path into the barn.
