This is my newest painting, 11x14 watercolor. I came across this old barn a couple of years ago, on a county road south of Hillsboro, Texas. I was on my way to a friend's house, rounded a curve & driving into the sun, I saw it in my rearview mirror after I was already past. One good thing about gravel county roads is the absense of traffic....and there's no danger of causing a wreck if you slam on the brakes & back up a couple hundred feet to take a photo! The huge bird landed & perched on top just as I snapped the shot. I couldn't have planned it any better! Anyway, I uploaded the photo then forgot about it until this week when I found it while looking through my reference photos. It's a great old barn that has stood for decades.....lots of character; with or without the bird.
