These watercolors were done with a minimum of colors, wanting to keep it simple, but still capture the feel of the old dairy barn and the old church. They are both in Michigan where we sometimes vacation and see family.The attic of the dairy barn held many family treasures at one time. We were lucky enough to get a few of these. My hubby and I both love the old, aged, and well worn articles. They usually are worn in just the right places, and you can tell that they have been loved by many through the years.
