Announcement   If you enjoy paintings of farms, barns, farm houses, or winter scenes this shop is for you. I travel back roads with sketch book and camera in hand trying to find special landscape scenes that will make wonderful paintings just for you. Every painting is an actual farm, barn, or house that may still be in operation as an active farm or maybe abandoned to the elements.

About

Preserving America's Homesteads

I really enjoy making landscape farm scenes using watercolors and some acrylics and have found a niche in the market place since my daughter encouraged me to start an etsy shop. Usually I will see a farm as I am travelling and snap some photos to be used back in my studio to work up a pencil drawing. I transfer this drawing to 140 lb. watercolor paper and try to finish the painting in one setting, usually one evening after dinner.
From an artists eye I see farm buildings as shapes, squares, rectangles, triangles, etc. that I place on a horizon crisscrossed by fields, fences, and tree lines.

I have taken photos of barns, houses, farm buildings, and windmills in state after state as I have travelled across the midwest and by now have hundreds of photos filed away by date and state. Many of the barns I have painted have since fallen because of disrepair or wind and the elements. I feel I am preserving a part of American history and handing it down to those who purchase a painting from me. Some of my customers have said a particular painting reminded them of a grandparents farm or maybe the farm they grew up on. That's very satisfying to me and I thank the Lord I am able to make these wonderful paintings.

    Since taking my first art class 20 years ago I've been making and selling farm landscapes that I have sold to customers around the world. I've found a niche in the 8x10 winter snowfall paintings, I love making them.
