Barn Formation – original watercolor


1 in stock

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Rob experimented with multiple images. Some people said “if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all” referring to his work, and this is Rob’s response to that. At first glance, it’s the same barn repeated over and over. But if you look closely, each barn is different. The details, the wood grain and shadows and color placement, varies in each one.

This is an unusual example of his work but a good representation of the way that Rob remained interested in his subject matter. There was always another way to approach it, and each image was unique because of how he approached his work. This painting consists of 24 barns painted on a white board, in a very graphic layout. The dark brown velvety mat and wooden frame are dated and show some wear and tear. This painting was displayed in Rob’s home and studio but was not owned by any other owner. Best viewed in person since the reflections in the glass made it difficult to capture the image.

Image size is approximately 21×19. Outer frame dimensions are approximately 29×37″. Shipping will be via UPS Ground.
