The Wood Canvas Is Part Of The Art.

The Barn

I call this painting “Life…There Is Light After The Darkness”.

The left side of the painting represents the turmoil and storms we have as we go through our life’s journey. The right side of the painting represents the happiness, love and peace throughout ones life. It gives hope and light after you have been struck down in the darkness. The Barn is the focal point. To me it represents humans. No matter what is thrown at you to tear you down, to break you with grief, pain and sadness the human condition can win out. The barn will not be crushed in the aftermath of immense destruction, and  you CAN shine on and stand tall through it all with hope, happiness, freedom, love and a sense of calm, peace and inner strength.

Cedar and Pine wood planks are my chosen canvases. Discover why in my blog. I’m just an amateur artist trying to show that anyone can with a desire to experiment with acrylic painting can create something different and unusual. Don’t let fear of trying hold you back.

I hope you take a few minutes and click the blog link above to see more of my paintings.

Thank you for visiting and I welcome your comments.

    1. Thank you so much. Hopefully it will inspire someone to give something a go. Everyone is talented in some ways. Some don’t know it, but I believe it’s there. They just have to reach in and give something a try. I guess that is what I’m really trying to achieve with this blog, and that is go forth and create and discover what you are capable of. 🙂

  1. Hi, there! Thanks for visiting our blog (Fat-Bottom-Fifties Get Fierce). I love your painting and was wondering if it would be OK to use one (the Dutch windmills) for the background for a saying for my Christian FB page at
    I would include credit on the painting. I totally understand if you would prefer that I did not use it. I look forward to enjoying more of your work!

  2. Well dear brother you are following our Mother and Father’s footsteps with your so wonderful talent! Another Masterpiece to add to the collection keep them coming! I’ve been trying to capture them in my cell phone so I can share with our dear Mother!


  3. Great that you are trying something different. I love to paint on wood as a canvas too! But cedar is not so easy to obtain here. I remember obtaining a small piece of dressed American Oak and it was a dream to paint on, but mostly I use pine or at worst…. mdf….
