Inside the barn

February 17, 2014

Several years ago, my son decided to create a space in the upper level 
of our barn to use as his art studio.
Chris paints mostly landscapes, but at times enjoys painting Still Life.
He covered the old barn floors temporarily with plywood 
for safety and to protect them. 
Can you see his little black cat on the ladder?
We believe the barn was built in the early 1800's.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Still Life set up. Tape marks on floor are for standing position.

As you can see this barn is huge!

In the 60's owners installed a basketball court for their 4 sons.

Back entrance to the barn.


  1. Lovely place to retreat and let the creativity flow. Warm Blessings! Amy

  2. Morning, such a wonderful space, I would love to have a barn like that, Blessings Francine.

  3. What a wonderful place for your son to paint....and it is huge. Sure wish my attic was a tidy.


  4. Love the space! So calming. Very, very cool!

  5. That's an awesome studio! I'd love to have a barn like that in my yard! Something to aspire too! *grin*

  6. I would love to have that barn. My barn that houses my rug hooking studio is about the size of a two car garage. I'm running out of room.

  7. What a beautiful space. I can see why your son loves to paint there. I enjoyed the pics. Hugs, Lori

  8. A beautiful studio indeed!!! Love the cat :) My Best, Kimberly

  9. Your son's studio has the appearance of a still life! What a magnificent space...and kitty looks right at home!
    Wishing you much joy Louise ...
