"Stone Barn in Winter"
Salsbury Cove, Maine
"Stone Barn in Winter" is an original Maine watercolor landscape painting by Beth Whitney.
This view shows the historic stone barn in winter, which is unusual for me. I normally paint happy summer scenes (winters in Maine can get long), but this barn really lends itself to a snowy backdrop. The roof, the cobblestones, granite, red trim, great doors, patriotic flag, and wreath all contrast beautifully with the bluey shadows in the snow.
For perspective, I took the reference photo after a big storm, and I'm across the street by the pasture (see the fence posts without the fencing?). The plow had only been through once, so I just filled Crooked Road in with snow. That's why it looks like the barn is a little further off the road than it really is.
"Stone Barn on Crooked Road" features a summer side view of the barn.
My Landscapes Gallery has more paintings of from locations around Mount Desert Island and more.

This original watercolor painting includes a classic double white archival mat and backing board in a crystal clear protective closure sleeve. It's ready to slip into a standard 12x16" frame (not included).
The pictures below will help you visualize the matted painting and give you ideas for choosing a frame. I recommend taking it with you when you go frame shopping so you can test drive several profiles and find one that speaks to you. I think any kind of frame would work well with this because of the elements and colors. This would look great displayed in a room with lots of blue to pull out the sky.
