THE OLD BARN SLEEPS, IGNORED, 5X7, SOLD Original Oil, Canvas Board


The old barn sleeps, ignored, beside the highway
Where tourists thunder by, vacation bound
And in her dreams, she sees her past unfolded
And ghosts of folk who once walked here-around

P. Smith


Autumn is just around the corner.  How did this happen so fast?


I have been spending a lot of time in western North Carolina...so expect a lot of barn paintings in the near future!

Hope your's is a happy day :0)

I adore old barns. Decades ago, when I was in photo school, there was one about an hour from my house and I use to do photo shoots there all the time. The lighting was fantastic. It has fallen down and is gone now but I have it in many of my photographs :)

Really enjoying your North Carolina landscapes . . . love the muted colors and blast of contrast and texture. I got tagged by Virginia Floyd to post 7 paintings in certain categories from my blog and now I'm tagging you! The best explanation is on Virginia Floyd's blog.
Happy choosing!
