Today’s XXL Daily Painting…I call it “Barn Floor”

The Barn Floor, oil enamel on concrete, 30x40 feet

This is the biggest painting I’ve ever created…a whopping 30 by 40 feet in oil enamel on concrete.  It is one of those very modern monochromatic studies in a smooth buttery-yellow.  Dan vacuumed up all the sand the barn builders had tracked in, I did the cutting in around the edges with a brush, and we shared the rolling duties.  It looks gorgeous…and though it is dry now it has a wet-look shine that makes the interior of the barn/studio look bigger and brighter.

Thanks to friend Adrienne W, for choosing the color.  It is Valspar Floor & Porch Paint in “beachcomber”.  I wanted to use a color called “artist canvas” (for obvious reasons) but it was too grey — exactly the color of unprimed linen.  Adrienne has had so much building and decorating experience that she is practically a contractor, so we deferred to her better judgement…and the floor looks great!
