Our Old Barn

Old Barn 18" x 14"

This barn stood on the acreage where I grew up. This was the run-down, worn-out condition of the barn when I was a kid, so I am sure that it no longer stands. I used two faded, old photos as source material.

Although some parts of the painting were challenging, I had fun remembering the many hours I spent playing and exploring in this yard and surrounding forest. And remembering the various animals – horses, pigs and barn cats – that lived inside.

    I love the light in this painting. It looks like such a friendly old barn.

    • Thanks Cyn. I had to imagine the lighting a bit because both photos were kind of flat.

  2. This is neat – you can tell you have fond memories because of all the sunshine and happy colors you painted it with. Very nice

  3. Old buildings are always a great medium they always look the same long enough to capture in a painting,only the things around it change,paint fast the grass is growing.
