A barn and a robin

Tiny paintings 3″ x 3″

This has not been the most productive summer, artwise. I did manage to complete these two little paintings for my aunt (to give to my other aunt). Thanks to Sandy for motivating me to get something done!

It’s unusual to see this barn without a bunch of kids out front and people wandering around. Southlands Heritage Farm is a community farm, open to the public – a great place if you need a break from the city, without leaving the city.

Since many of these will be given as Christmas gifts, I decided to make some that are appropriate for the season.

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.

A Few More Minis

Black-eyed Susans - 2" x 2"

Here are a few more of these tiny paintings. They are so much fun, but not necessarily easy. I have to constantly remind myself not to get too fussy with the details. I think the most successful of these are the ones where the details are generalized.
