The Old Family Farm oil landscape

"Family Farm"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This is a large commission that I just completed.
It is 4 ft. x 6 ft.!
It is a bit of a mix of past & present brought together
for a client of their old family farm.
It shows their pond with ducks. Although they don't raise horses
anymore, they wanted to show them in the painting and
along with a donkey they use to have.
Its been a while since I got to do this size and it was really fun
to bring this all together for them.


Red Barn country rural landscape

"Red Barn"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas
10"x 10"

The old red barn.

I have always been drawn to the old red barns that dot the countryside.
Do you know why they are painted red?
I did some research and actually found many theories. So here's a bit of history today :)
The most popular one theory seems to be:
Early 18th-century bridges and barns went unpainted. However,by the late 1700's, natural wood seasoning gave way to artificial preservation. Virginia farmers were the first to become paint-conscious. Since ready-made paint was not available, a farmer mixed his own. Skimmed milk, lime and ferrous oxide, otherwise known as rust, made a plastic-like coating that hardened quickly and lasted for years. Rust was plentiful on farms and is a poison to many fungi, including mold and moss.
