Viewing this painting transports you to Huron County at sunrise or sunset. The mauves, pinks and blues of the sky are softly reflected on the snow on the road leading to the red barn, and on the fields of the farm. HURON COUNTY FRONT ROAD is one of a series of barn paintings depicting the typical Ontario barns of southwestern Ontario. This painting is set off by the textured handmade frame that the artist builds and paints for each painting to best complement the work.

The Artist: David C. Armstrong started painting as a boy, growing up in Ottawa, Ontario. He studied at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto and then at the Art Center Los Angeles. In L.A. he instructed at the Butler Fine Arts School. He has painted in three primary mediums. In Toronto, he painted abstracts and figures. Moving to the Georgian Bay area, he painted in the footsteps of the Group of Seven, establishing his reputation as an oil painter. In the early 90's, when he relocated to Brentwood Bay just outside Victoria, BC he painted the island villages, the rugged coast, and the West Coast sky, mostly in watercolour. Since returning to Ontario he has been using acrylics “and my work is larger and looser because of it”. As an easel artist, I paint vertically and directly. Most paintings are done 'a la prima'. I paint where I am; and farms, villages, and urban landscapes are frequent themes. I paint with a young boy’s enthusiasm, and an old man’s eye!”
