"Thank You Old Barn!"
I am so very lucky to live in a section of New England where there are still many small family owned farms. I pass by this barn almost every day. I thought it was such a strong and courageous structure. It certainly has worked hard over the years. It deserved to be "painted"! (No pun intended!) After getting permission from my friend the farmer I did this quick oil sketch. I may finish it later and give it to him as a gift! Or I may frame it and give it to him as is!
Happy Autumn! Hug a farmer!
