Buffalo River Sheds


While driving near Boxley, Arkansas, my uncle and I came
across this view of an open pasture with a couple of old sheds.
I'm always inclined to paint something like this - I have a
good collections of barns, sheds, etc,- but the day was such
good weather and the view so inviting.
It beckoned to be painted.

That's a beautiful picture. You used the colors wonderfully, and it looks alive.

Gil,
You may not remember me, maybe my brother, Mike Condon...
Ran across your site and had to say hello.. Pat "Condon" Johnson, aka PJ.
I am a watercolorist (late bloomer) and have portraits of my hospice patients (I have been a hospice nurse since 1986). I now live in Montana... Mike is in NY *(but you may know that).
Lovely work you do... love the Arkansas paintings especially...
Pat...

Yes!! I remember you very well indeed. I haven't heard from Mike in a long time..There's going to be another reunion in Fayetteville this July and I hope he comes. I may try and make it. It's good to hear from you..keep painting! I can see how much you enjoy it..it really shows. Very creative work, to be sure. I'm a little more middle of the road with impressionism but trying to expand a little. Just trying not to be the old guy..
Thanks for dropping me a note. I really appreciate it.
Gil
