This is my No. 27 in my 365/2013 series
"Acts 2:38 Barn"
8X10 watercolor
This barn is near Warren, Tennessee, just across the state line from Florence, Ala.
I found it early one morning while roaming before starting a class in a workshop i was conducting in Florence.
I love barns wiht writing on them especially with messages like this
"The Peter said into them, repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall recieve the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:39
There is also a cross on the roof.
i hope you like what I do.
Comments are appreciated.

No. 10 in my 365/2013 series

8X10 watercolor
I do know where these silos are located. They are in Southwest Tennessee, just north of the Alabama line from Florence, Alabama.
I first saw these in the early 90's while doing a workshop in Florence.
I do hope you like what I do.
Comments are appreciated.

No. 9 of my 365/2013 series

I 've painted these silos several times since i first found them back in the late 70's.
I can find them now I think they must have goe the way of the wind. I think they were on land owned by the Davis family.
It was either Danforth or Covell, pretty sure. Any help?
I hope you like what I do.

No.7 in my 365/2013 series.
"Glacier at Lake Louise, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
One of the most beautiful places i've experience.


This is how this building looked when I first saw it in the late 60's.
It has recently been remodled and moved into town.


No. 5 in my 365/2013 series.
Saw this on vacation several years ago. I'm thinking it was upstate New York but can't be positive about that.


This was painted from a photo given to me by a friend.
This scene is from the north end of Cottage Street. I walked this route on the railroad tracks many times on my way to Lee Jr. High Scgool.
I hope y0u like what I do. Comments are appreciated.

No. 3 in my 365/2013 series
This is an 8X10 watercolor of the historic Round Barn in Arcadia, Oklahoma just NE of Edmond, Oklahoma. It was one of the ,ost popular stopping places for travelers on Hwy. 66 during the 1950's.
Recently going through renovations it's lost, in my opinion, some of the oldtime charm it had even i around 1976 when i first painted it.
I hope you like what I do. Please comments are encouraged.
