Barn on the Plains

Barn on the Plains
This piece has been waiting and waiting and waiting to be completed.  This morning while looking for a brownie recipe in one of my mother's women's magazines I found the barn and silo.  Within minutes it was cut out and adhered to the waiting background.

This past week during my workshop at the Orcas Senior Center I was given a baggie full of narrow fabric scraps by one of the participants, Maggie.  The fabric lines that you see sure came in handy.  Once the pieces fell into place this spread came to a quick closure.

It is a windy day on this farm and the dust is arising!

This is really beautiful John. years ago I lived out among the farms and would paint them all the time. This is exactly how it looks. Those colors in the soil are perfect.

Lovely strong colours. My sister makes fabulous cards with sari silk 'ribbons' a bit like your strips from Maggie's baggie.

I LOVE this John- reminds me of my childhood in Iowa. Beautiful colors.

I love this too, John - the sense of space in the sky is fabulous as well as the colours.
