Born in a Barn?

 "Happy Little Barn" (16x20) oil on linen

I wasn't raised on a farm, but may have been born in a barn (I've been painting so many lately). These were painted outside the town of Newberg, Oregon not far from my house. 

"Catawampus" (16x20) o/c

Was never a big fan of 'barn paintings' before, but lately I've been noticing how the old ones with all the character are going away for good in our area, being replaced by steel structures... Better for the farmers I suppose, but sad to see charm of the old school wood going by the wayside... I guess I've warmed up to them now that they're an endangered species -- might even hug one if they weren't so big (and farmer John wasn't watching)...
A shame to think in a few more years, we'll only have pictures of them...and paintings.


  1. Man, the vibrant colors in the 2nd one just SINGS together loud and beautifully!

  2. Bonjour,

    Deux très belles peintures... J'aime l'atmosphère qu'elles dégagent.
    Une belle lumière les illumine.

    Gros bisous ♡
