Introducing the Morgan Farm near Homeplace Restaurant, Catawba

Introducing “Morgan Farm near Homeplace Restaurant, Catawba, Acrylic 16 X 20.

On Father’s Day, Elaine and Eric took Mike and I to dinner at the Homeplace Restaurant in Catawba. Many of you have eaten there and know that the food is simply delicious! Everything is served “home style” and it’s a special treat! The old house and the grounds are beautiful! It was a beautiful sunny day when we were there, so I took some pics of the adjacent barn and stream (you know I am drawn to barns). The resulting photo inspired me to paint it. This is the result.

As a footnote: At one of my shows recently, a lady looked at one of my landscape paintings and said, ”if you hadn’t put cows in it, I would buy it”. This one has no cows although the fields look like a great place for them!

Early Spring, Acrylic 16 X 20

This past weekend we were at Hungry Mother Park and I took some photographs of some old barns along the road leading to the park. This painting is based on one of those photos. I love it when Spring is right around the corner…..the grass begins to green, but the leaves are not yet on the trees. I hope you will enjoy this one! I took the liberty to use spring colors to showcase the barns and out buildings although these colors appeared in the photo too!
