This painting is definitely one of my personal favorites, and maybe the one I’m most proud to have done so far.
Unfortunately my photography skills don’t do it much justice. This one you must see in real life to fully appreciate. It is large—nearly 5 feet in height, and those old barn boards are a solid two inches thick—making the entire piece really heavy and substantial.
This painting is still available, and I insist it only go to a great home because it is so close to my heart. These boards came from the family farm where DeShanos have lived and worked for the past 150+ years, and are the last remnants of the old barn in which I used to play as a kid.
I feel so lucky to have spotted them when I did and give them new life, not only with the addition of this beautiful figure, but also simply finding ways to display the inherit beauty already there.
