7-11-16 ~ Barn Cooperative

Once again, it is time for Tom's Barn Collective and I am a day late...but better late than not at all :-)

I prefer the traditional wooden barns, but this is a nice metal one. 
It always looks to be in pristine condition.

 This is just a little freehand watercolor that I tried to do of a barn and some hay bales.
I have been reading about a form of painting known as "etegami" and its three rules: let your work be clumsy, it's a one shot deal , and you have no model. There are wonderful examples on the internet it you are interested. Boy, do I have a long ways to go. It is usually done on post cards.

Covington was hit terribly by the recent flooding as was WV, but this area was not hit.

7=3=16 ~ The Barn Collective in Green and Yellow

It is Sunday and time for Tom's Barn Collective.

This is a beautiful home and barn complex not too far from home. The yellow and green with the while windows and fencing make for such a lovely rural landscape.
