OMG! another Barn – Watercolor

I know, I know, your saying another barn, come on Ryan try something different.  I’m sorry but barns are popular and this is for a fund raiser for my daughters high school.  I’m trying to make it universal and not Christmas related, not because I’m politically correct, but this makes it where the buyer can keep it up all winter and not just thru the Christmas season.  Anyway I hope to try something new and different soon!  Sorry!

  2. Hey, I love barns! Everybody loves barns. You can’t go wrong with a subject like that. The barbwire brings in an interesting menacing twist to the whole scene – a change of mood from the common idyllic setting. You did good here!

  4. I grew up on a farm so I like thinking about all the life these buildings have seen. I also really like the way you used the barbed wire in this painting. Very imaginative. And remember would Andy Warhol have said he had too many Marilyns? You can never have too many barns!

  5. I don’t think anyone has complained about repetitious work. Besides, each barn has a life of its own and I see something new everytime I visit. This one looks as though it has withstood the wind and the years very well. I like the accuracy of the foreground farm fence. So real, the wire fencing with strands of “killer” barbed wire atop. Very cool, Ryan.

    I like barn, they give such a fresh look to any painting. I like especially the colors and the country scene.

    • Thanks!
      I have always had a love for barns, whether playing in them as a child or painting them today, they just seem to have a beauty about them.

    • Thank you Lorre,
      This one is sold and although joking about barns, people still like old barns as well as I.
