Old Barn, Cutter Homestead
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
When we were here, I was timid to go through the grass to the barn, thinking about snakes. But my friend T, who grew up here, and used to play in this barn (it seemed so much bigger then, she reports), had no hesitation at all, and tromped all over the property, looking at the foundations of the old house, picking pears from the old pear tree, and generally enjoying her childhood memories. It is a beautiful spot.

Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
I always used to think that for barns and fields and hay rolls, it was a trip to Pennsylvania, but I've changed my mind. It's West Virginia! I'm ready to go back...mountain vistas, lottsa hay rolls, so many barns, beautiful rolling hills...yummy!

Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
I was blessed to go along for the weekend with a friend headed to West Virginia. Soooooo beautiful in the Allegheny Mountains, rolling farmland, roads winding up one side of a mountain and down the other. I enjoyed a feast for the eyes. We stopped to see the farm where she grew up, climbed a fence to walk up the hill to see the foundations and barn, still there, with the mountains all around. Lovely!
