"Finding Your Homestead--the Red Barn" is a 24" x 24" x 1" mixed media on canvas. This is part of a 7-part series of barns done with collaged handmade papers, maps, book pages, textured mediums and oil paint. (Six others are in galleries or have sold already.) Mary was inspired by her drives through Virginia and West Virginia, observing the various farmsteads and barns along the highway. Thinking about farmlife encouraged her to make a series highlighting those farms and the big, open skies of our country's farms. Framed in a light, wood floating frame.
