"Modern Day Farming"


 watercolor

14" x 20"

landscape


These new fandangle farms are a sight to see.  You can't miss them because they are so new and shiny.   They have come a long way from the traditiional farming.  I bet there is a lot of technology involved.

I personally love an old lapidated falling down barn that conveys a lot of character.  They are such great subject matters and are so readily found where I live.

Currently in Highland, Indiana we are all trying to save Scheeringa Farmers llc.  It is a family owned farm that has been here for years.  The city wants to take the farm and put up senior living.  I am a senior so I guess I should be for this.  But NO....SAVE THE FARM.  So many people will lose so much if this happens.  They are a great family and they have a great business that needs to be saved. Help us .. Pray...

Stay well.  Stay strong.

It's a lovely day here today in Indiana.  The sun is shinning.  I sat in my gazebo today for a bit and was thinking of my barn series and what I would like to add to it.  Came up with a lot of ideas and will continue with them.  Will be doing more pen and ink drawing to go with this series so watch for them..

Have a great weekend.  Stay Well.  Stay Strong.

It was a beautiful day as I was experiencing it from my car window,,,,The skys were  so pretty and the clouds put on a great show for us as we drove.

Pretty soon the crops will all be picked and fall will be just around the corner. Soon you will smell the scent of leaves burning in the air.

"Indiana Barn II"


 watercolor

11" x 15"

landscape


Everywhere in Indiana there seems to be a barn somewhere waiting to be painted or to be captured in a painting.  I love to paint barns and rural scenes since I have photographed so many.  These structures are so exciting to me and I am fascinated thinking about what the life of a farmer is like.  Bet I couldn't survive one day.  They get up just when I am going to bed.  But I bet at the same time, they are wondering what it is like to be an artist.  

Stay Well.  Stay Strong,  Enjoy the rest of summer.

"Barn Reflections"

watercolor

landscape


I took this photo on one of my barn photo shoots.  I used my artistic license and added the water in the foreground.  It's fun to make things up and be creative.  We call this composition and design.  Enjoy.

Stay Well.  Be strong.
