Old Red

Old Red
Drybrush Watercolor
6.5"x 10.5"
$275. framed
I can't even begin to count how many old barns I have explored and played in since I was six years old. I still get that sense of excitement and mystery when I look in a barn door or window. Old wood barns are rapidly disappearing from the landscape and I feel a sense of urgency to record the ones I come across before they too are gone.
I have always been intrigued by the random and almost whimsical way that a rancher will place a board here or an odd little window or door there for no apparent reason.
Someone gave up painting this barn a long time ago which has added to its character.
