Creative Tuesdays: This Old Barn


After a few days of sketching and painting, I've finally finished my contribution to the Creative Tuesdays theme, This Old Barn. I'm a big fan of old barns, especially red ones.  I grew up around many and they often bring great comfort and peace to me.  This theme couldn't have come at a better time as the Autumnal weather is slowly creeping in and leaving its footprints everywhere.  From the cold rain to the yellow leaves; it's perfect!

  1. This is just so adorable! I love what a different approach you took and considered a whole different scene. The apples and pumpkins make me crave fall. Makes me want to put on a big warm scarf and go pumpkin picking!

    2. It is indeed happy, dare I say, even joyful, smooots. I love it. Seeing it completed with the line work now in place makes it that much more delightful. I LOVE your take on it with an old bird house barn. Very clever and totally cute. Autumn it is! Now, where's that hot cider? Thank you! :)
