This painting was done on location in the morning in about two hours. An old barn in the middle of farm country. This old barn reminded me of my childhood days on the farm. The weathered look of the barn contribute to the feeling of its many years of usefullness to its owner and the livestock it has sheltered. The lonely two track in the foreground continues to meander past the right side of the barn and off into the distant field. The left side of the painting is framed with an upclose oak tree, its roots working thier way out into the road.

I have been an oil painter my entire life. Many of the paintings that I do are sentimental rural settings. I also like to paint landmarks and paintings that tell a story like "Surprise Visit". My paintings have won first place in a lot of competitions and many times have been sold that way. To me there is no more satisfying experience than to complete a painting and be happy with the outcome. The next best thing is to have someone buy it! I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings and I welcome your comments. I will personalize a print once you have kept it for the duration of the 30 days. You must pay the shipping to and from me.
