These early Barnscapes were intended to be a return to figuration, and I suppose a need to make some sort of reference to my new found temporary home for the Fulbright Exchange.

The scale and format of the work (4x4 feet) is square to represent the notion of a grid and the fact that my specific view at that time could be a part of the greater picture.
I wanted to make paintings to evoke feeling and take the viewer to a special place....I wanted to communicate my enthusiasm for the beauty in the landscape around me ,but at the same time give the image exagerated colour and depth.
