Painting Idea—Rte 276, Cross Keys

I drive this road so many times I keep seeing ideas for paintings along it. This one is traveling south, somewhere between Mt. Crawford and Cross Keys—a single white barn against the skyline with its eave vent slats, a row of winter deciduous and conifer trees also against the sky, cold grey rumpled cloud-cover, very soft, no edges, and a scrubby sloping field, with the remains of last year's corn stubble and vague indications of rows. Not a big painting, maybe 20x30.
