Painting - Pen And Ink
Haines Barn sits on a ridge near the norther border of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. I studied it every time I visited friends who lived nearby.
They have since moved away, but the pen and ink image of the barn hangs in the hallway leading to my kitchen, a reminder of all the good times and a link to my years in that part of Appalachia.
The simplicity of this old structure suggested a spare and simple approach to drawing it. I've since been told that it resembles in some ways a Japanese brush and ink style, although that was not a conscious intent.
Although the detail in it is sparse, when matted in a manner that preserves its wide, horizontal dimension, you'll find there is quite a lot to please the eye.
This print is part of a series of wildlife, floral, and scenic lithographs available directly from the artist. This one features an image approximately 14 by 9 inches (including a bit of white space on each side) on a sheet of heavy paper, 17 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches for $35 plus $10 packaging and shipping.
If you'd like this version, it can be ordered through my Etsy.com shop: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19898036.
