Barns and more barns



This summer I had the opportunity to pick up some really beautiful reproductions of barn paintings. I absolutely LOVE barns and have always wanted to paint one. Aren't these gorgeous?? The artist is Billy Jacobs.





I found this beautiful photo online and decided as part of my 21 day challenge to just begin my own barn painting. On the left is the photo and on the right my version.





The canvas is really big at 24" X 36". I decided to hang it on the landing wall that leads to my upstairs. Love the pop of red. Definitely gives me my barn fix:)





Have a blessed day.






**Just
wanted to thank you all for your wonderful words of support yesterday. Many of you shared your own stories...thank you for being so honest and real. You are ALL awesome. I am so humbled to have you in my life!

  6. You are an amazing artist. This is great! I have always loved looking at old barns and buildings. I drive by so many in South Dakota and I always think about the stories behind the buildings.

    I will be driving through your lovely state next week to fly out of Minneapolis on a little getaway.

  22. I've always dreamed of restoring a glorious old barn into an incredible ranch house. Your barn is beautiful. The perfect splash of red on your wall.

    Regarding your previous post - through your obedience to listen to the voice of the Lord and act on what you were told someone experienced the perfect healing balm. God uses the junk in our lives to minister to others. Bless you, Sister in Christ for your willingness to be a vessel.

  23. That's beautiful!

    Agreeing with the above--I firmly believe that I am meant to share my story, the good AND bad of it. I'm sorry for what you went through, but thank you for allowing God to use that story to minister to others.
