The Old Farmstead and Memories of the Country

Watercolor - 11x15

I love to paint old barns sitting out in the countryside with their weathered wood and the trees and grass growing up around them. As a child I used to love visiting our cousins in Kentucky and going out to their old family farm where we would play tag, all pile on the tractor and ride around and jump from the hayloft in the barn. To top it off I was the only girl on that side of the family,one brother and four boy cousins. My grandfather always said that I was his favorite granddaughter and even though I knew he was teasing, I loved hearing it!
