Two Barns From The Family

I live on a century farm. The farm has been in the family since 1911. The first painting above was painted at the farm next door, where my Grandpa grew up. the second painting was where my Great Aunt Elva grew up. She milked cows in this barn, and it's located on HWY S.

Painting has given me a sense of place in this area. I didn't know that my great aunt grew up at that farm, until after I painted it, and my Mother recognized it.
