|Traveling with our very young daughters, Jelsi and Kristana, to
Bill and Dena Arnold’s wedding south of Lewiston ID but north
of Clarkston, WA, I spotted this amazing barn in the middle of
“no where”. I asked Dave to stop so I could take a photo.
However, I was not getting the shot that I was looking for so in my
wedding attire, I climbed on top of our SUV and captured this
The sky is “artist’s liberty” I must admit. I had kept a picture of
this sky from a lighthouse back East. I was fascinated by the
movement and colors.
I decided to paint the sky first, because if I didn’t get it right, I
would start over until I did. For those of you who know me,
“control” can be an issue, ask our girls. In order to paint this sky
you have to let the water flow and be very loose. That includes
the artist! So mostly I just took very deep breaths and had plenty
of paint to continue adding to get all of the colors I wanted.
Then it was a matter of tipping the paper and letting the water
flow or using a brush “loaded” with clean water and let it move.
After doing some shows in Ritzville WA, I have found that many
people that have been raised in rural America know of a barn just
like this one.
