Maple Syrup And Pancakes ..11" x 14" O/P
I managed to get "back north" for a couple of days to look for painting subjects. I came across this old deserted maple sugar shack advertising pancakes and syrup. It is not often that one finds this large type of sugar shack. Obviously at one time a commercial enterprise.
The main feature of this 'shack' was that its main structure was entirely made of huge logs. Not unlike the early pioneer home.
Just unusual enough to beg to be painted.
My palette was limited to the basic red, yellow and ultramarine blue, and of course, titanium white. My panel was Masonite that had two coats of gesso applied to the surface. The surface was also left white.
I noticed that the "gold" was beginning to gradually creep into the green field grasses. The golden rod was in full bloom.
Still lots of good painting weather, especially with autumn just around the corner.
