The Red Barn

This barn, one of Ontario’s ubiquitous bank barns, was in the middle of a field on a sideroad way, way out in the country. It looked quite safe from developers’ bulldozers.

The print is one of a series of larger barn prints, this one is matted to 14×23. The barn was red, honest!

Summer storm

This is one of the only engravings I’ve done from a photo; it shows my brother watching the rain when we were supposed to be bringing in hay. I was working on it 19 years ago today then I took my daughter trick or treating, got sick and stayed off work for a week. I remember all of this because  1: I thought I’d use that stay at home time to finish the engraving and screwed it up so badly I started over and 2: I quit smoking.

It’s a good thing I dated it, I’d forgotten how long it’d been:-)
