"Valley Barn" 8x10
This painting was painted from a photo I took while in the Nashville area for a workshop this past summer. Like many artists, I have a "thing" for barns! It might be cliche, but I can't help myself! They just speak to me when I drive by so now I veer over (safely, usually!) and take photos if I can't whip out my paints and paint it right then and there. This one is located in the lovely little community called Leiper's Fork. If you ever get near Nashville, you have to drive around here. Cool little grocery store/restaurant that is really a Southern landmark called Puckett's Grocery to eat a great, southern lunch too!
