Today I finished this oil painting of a barn from a photo I had taken in Door County, Wisconsin last Summer. It is so sad that so many barns are not being kept up and are falling down and disappearing forever. Many of the new barns going up are called pole barns that you can buy in a kit at a farm supply store. Although some are pretty nice looking, they just don't feel the same to me as the older traditional barns.
Linking to Paint Party Friday and The Daily Paintworks. For those of you living in the Chicago area or Lake County specifically, my original oil painting "Fone Home" will be on exhibit at the Robert T. Wright Gallery in Grayslake, IL for a month, in the Lake County College Members Show. The opening reception is January 18th from 7 to 9 PM. 19351 W. Washington Street, Grayslake, IL 60030
