The 15 barn images below represent about 50% of the paintings I've made so far this year. I'm currently working on the 16th barn, with no end in sight. I just love doing them. 

In between, I've done a number of commissions, and several old-truck paintings. Those are fun, too! Also working on a series of foggy waterviews for a show in October. (I will post about the other paintings separately.)

I have enough barns to be able to choose 12 for a 2019 calendar. Currently researching printing options. 

Here are the barns. They are all oils on canvas, various sizes. Smallest is 16" x 20", and up from there.
If you have a favorite, I'd love to know which it is. 

Thanks for looking!

#6. It’s both real and a bit mysterious because you can’t see inside the openings.

Thank you Kosh.

The calendar is a great idea....A good deal of residual cash flow could result from the right deal with the right publisher...

Ron, All of these barns are local- I now have a following in the communities where most of these barns stand. We’re going to start with a self-published version to begin with and see how that goes. One step at a time!

 if one just had to choose one from the other to be the one would one be choosing one to be the one for January or for one's bEarthday month 

red barn on left is captivating,, it looks like such an improbable front entry into a barn for anything two or four legged entering from any direction or exiting day or night with any haste. The roof line of the fore addition  resembles structures i've lived in, worked on and under, torn down sold reclaimed recycled, screened in and inhabited, moved from into another.

i like em all....

Moki Ikom, the barn you mention received a new roof right after I painted it. Another of the barns (#3) was bulldozed on Easter Sunday. Some of the wood was reclaimed but the roofing is in a pile on the ground. It's gone from iconic to eyesore. Dang.

Thanks, SB. My favorite is whichever one I'm painting at the time. I can't be objective at all.

ROW 2, COLUMN 4.  (ALL WONDERFUL.)

Jon, thanks! that particular painting was donated to the owners for their barn-renovation fundraiser. They are trying to obtain historical status for their “ Smythshire Farm”.
