Posts Tagged ‘Farm’

Yesterday (Monday) was my day off.  I try really hard to not schedule anything on Mondays since I work most weekends and it’s usually the only day off I get.  But yesterday, instead of laying around catching up on my rest and house work I went to visit my friends at Sanders Ranch (Battlefield Equestrian Center).

It’s owned by Kim Sanders, one of the girls that comes to paint Pet Portraits once a quarter with the group from Centerville area.  We always have such a great time.  While I have been to her place once she invited me to come back to paint.  So I did.  What a fun day.

I got two paintings started which I will share with you as soon as I complete them but even better than that I got tons of reference photos of the animals and barns.  It’s like a petting zoo there with all the fun and friendly animals…..donkey, horses, dogs, cats, sheep, chickens, turkey….  What fun!  Thanks again Kim.  I loved it.

20151002_101022-1While we were painting the Barn with Flag a few months ago at Paint Parties (see those here and here) I started working on this one as well.  I finally had some time at Open Studio yesterday to wrap it up.

I like the image of old barns with our flag hanging proudly.

All-American Barn, acrylic, 9″x12″, available for sale.
