Painting Inspiration: Old barns!
I love old barns, don’t you? They have such character! Now that I live in Northeast Texas, there seems to be quite a few. Even nicer is some aren’t very far away. This little trio cluster of barns wasn’t far from our home and became the basis for my painting titled “Barn Trio” which is 9×12 and available for purchase direct.
In Plein Air
When time permits I enjoy painting on location. If you wish to paint landscapes it’s such a valuable learning session because you see so much more than what a photo will show. But when combined with photos for reference, it captures the essence of the scene and becomes more true to life.
Here’s a little on location video showing the start of the painting and the scenery. Enjoy!
Introducing my latest new landscape oil painting with old barns and donkeys. This scene had a natural composition except the donkeys or burros were added. They were some my brother-in-law had which I photographed. By way of paint tin on the old barn was repaired some. The actual tin on much of the barn looked as if some huge monster tried to eat it. There’s a point where the nostalgia of an old barn moves past that and becomes too junky looking.
Feeling rather glad to finish this painting after not being to paint for a time due to a fall from a ladder and fracturing several ribs. But, thankfully they’re mostly healed and getting back to the easel is now possible.
The title of this painting is “Lunchtime” and is painted on linen canvas under my William Hagerman Signature. 20×30 in size. $4900 (Click image to view larger)

Springtime came early hear in Texas and due to drier conditions the bluebonnets were not as plentiful, but not my new bluebonnet oil painting! It is full of bluebonnets and rich spring hues.
Titled “Spring Consonance” it resonates with melodic soothing paint tones generated by beautiful morning light and cool shadows.
This larger format measures 24×36 and would make a striking center piece of art for your home or office. Now available at Folger Gallery in Midland, Texas.
