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.

Iíve been drawing and painting since I was a child. I majored in art in college and have studied at art centers, workshops and with other artists. My works have been exhibited in galleries on both coasts and are owned by collectors in the United States and abroad.
I paint to capture a day, a place or time that I donít want to forget and I do use tons of photos Iíve shot to help me in my paintings. My goal has always been to draw realistic settings.
My favorite media are watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, pen and ink and pencil.
