Barn Door: The newest project

Barndoor Posted by Picasa

This is my newest project. It took about three weeks from start to finish. The Painting is done on a 6' by 3' of masonite using a combination of laytex exterior paints (Baer) and liquetex polymer acrylics and then covered with a polymer matte finish. The painting is suppose to be finding its home on the side of a garden shed. However the new owner was so impressed I have a feeling it wont be outside too long.
