A Pop of Pink

I love the barns that have a quilt block attached to them. In fact there is a brochure you can get from Wisconsin tourism that maps out where quilted barns can be found by county. I have found many in Rock and Monroe Counties but not all are identified on a map.

My husband and I were on STH 33 heading east towards West Bend when I saw this quilted barn. We had to stop. The quilt design looked pretty new. It was definitely newer then the barn. I loved it. The bright pink rose popping out against the weathered wood of this old barn. I thought it was so pretty.

I painted that barn but I had to add some sheep and snow. Sheep always makes a painting look better. ❤️ Snow is coming. The temperatures are dropping and I already miss the fall days.

I think it’s going to be a long winter, but next year has got to be better then 2020. So find someone you love and hunker down. Be sure to have plenty of hot chocolate on hand. Before you know it spring us here and it will be garage sale season again.

Cactus in Texas

My daughter is a excellent photographer. I go through her photos every now and then looking for inspiration. I saw this photo of cactus she took and I thought I would give it a painting try.

A lot of people don’t know Wisconsin has some of the most beautiful cactus when in bloom. In the winter our cactus looks like a prune but in the spring that prune blooms and looks like a yellow rose. Southern Cactus
