Sunlit Barn

Oil on Linen Panel|12" x 9"

Here’s a painting of a barn not too far from where we live. I had every intention of painting this on-site but it was so incredibly windy that there was no way to make it happen. I’m talking a “blow your easel over immediately” type…

Oil on Canvas Panel|6" x 8"

I wanted to revisit No. 320 from earlier in the year and redeem that awful painting. This one is just a little bit better. I’m gonna be posting daily through the end of the year to hit 100.

Bunny - Impressionist Painting by Adam Houston

Bunny

Oil on Canvas|12" x 12"

Here’s the last painting I did during my workshop with James Richards. I felt a little goofy painting something like this during an event like that, but my daughter had requested a painting of “bunny” and I wanted it to be a good one. As…
