The Barn That Raised Me
Oil on canvas • 24” x 30”

If walls could talk, this barn would tell of the ridiculous trials and tribulations of my pre-teen hood, the adventures of three sisters and their many pets, and the loftiest things I’ve ever dreamed. But they can't. So I tell them through paint, and this reminds me I need to write it down too.

There’s the night/day one of our cats gave birth in that very milk house and my sister's videotaped and documented everything (why?).

We had a dog wedding.

We built countless hay bale forts in the loft of the barn and at one point even had a rope swing (it broke, safety first).

The prettiest songs were sung in the acoustically rich rafters of the barn.

We probably had a dozen cats.

The gentlest (dumbest) giant dog, Tia. I’d give anything for another day on the farm with her and Suzie. Suzie is the last remnants of animals from the farm, and I just want to remember her for how she was there.

"The Barn That Raised Me" is oil paint on gallery depth canvas. It is a beautiful item that sits well on its own or can be framed for a beautiful formal look.
