Childhood Memories

"McDonald's Barn"

When I was growing up my Grandparents lived on a working farm right outside Huntsville. I spent many hours as a child playing in that barn as well as all the animals. The barn is no longer standing, they "paved Paradise and put up a parking lot".  That barn was the inspiration for this painting, and I will probably paint more red barns because they are very dear to my heart! I hope you like it!

Mrs. Kaki,
I love the red barn and cows.

Hi Karen,
I just went to a family wedding that was held in a beautiful, renovated barn in the country. All along the back roads to the event were wonderful, old red barns. It was comforting and so familiar. I know I'm home when I see barns. Your painting touches my heart.
