This charcoal drawing, White Barn on the Bluff Road,
is based on photographs I had taken the winter of 2006. It had been a beautiful day with full sun until I discovered this rustic old barn. Just as I started to look around for a place to make a few sketches, clouds moved in turning the afternoon gray and cold. I settled on taking a few reference photographs. Upon arriving home that evening, I made this charcoal study using my memories and photographs as reference. The barn is located south of St. Louis in the Mississippi River Valley on the Illinois side. Purchase of Prints on Fine Art America is for decor use only.

Garry is constantly searching for those fleeting moments when the landscape, the atmospheric conditions and the ever-changing light come together in a flash of visual inspiration.
Whether you are inspired by the ebb and flow of the Mississippi River, a quiet walk through the rugged Ozark mountains, or watching a summer thunderstorm roll across the prairie you will appreciate the art of Garry McMichael.
