The Hours

"Princeton Barn"
9" x 12"
(watercolor on aquabord)

Oh the hours I've spent on this little ditty.  I'm throwing my hands up in the air and calling "uncle."  I don't know what to think.  I'm happy with some parts, but disappointed with others.  It was a good learning experience but I'm just going to sit on it for a while . . . at least for the weekend. 

Perhaps I'll crop it into a square: 

"Princeton Barn" - cropped into an 8" x 8"

Or crop it even so that only my favorite part shows -- that tree on the side - ha! 

"Princeton Barn" - detail

Any thoughts?


  1. The 9" x 12" is the one!

    Only you know what you wanted to achieve; we, the viewer, sees only a lovely painting - the muted palette allows the sunlight to be really effective.

  2. I agree about the 9" x 12" version. It is luminous! Love it.

  3. I love the original. How you've done the branches of that trees and the softness of it all....the light Yes that tree on the right carries a lot of weight. Shame it's so straight or something.. but it's the only thing that bugs my eye when I look at it. Thanks for sharing your stuff

  4. Kara, it's gorgeous. Don't crop it.
