Taking Over The Old Barn
Painting - Acrylic - Available On Canvas, Rolled Print, Framed Print, Cards
This piece is lush and rich with deep hues that pull you into the woods that have overgrown the abandoned barn.The flicker of red from the door and a glint of light from the rusting tin roof are the only distinctive features that allow humans to see what is left of this old building. Was this once a busy place for roosters, cows, and a diligent farm dog, a clearing surrounded by the very trees that have now claimed it? Who has left the flowers on the steps? Will man win out over the forest? This scenario has a feeling of depth, as if the forest goes on and on behind the cabin. But the brightness of the faint light that trickles past the leaves splashes onto the tin roof of the old barn, making the viewer wonder if he or she is just in time to save the old barn from complete abandonment to the trees that are encroaching. Would be beautiful in any room of the house: living room, den, kitchen, bedroom, family room, bathroom. Or hang it at your lake house, lodge, cottage, cabin, or beach house.
If you like rustic, home spun, country or just plain old-time comfort, you will love this piece.
