Day 27: When I am searching for a subject to paint, I look for what others would call imperfection. I love to find crooked fences, loose boards, sagging roof lines and tin patched walls. It’s things like these that create a back drop for life stories. While painting today, I found myself feeling the cold metal of the cans handles and took a moment to mentally step inside the milk house to hear the metallic click of the handle and smell the earthy pungent aromas of the barn beyond. I miss the smells that accompany a farm. They are honest and good.

Pull up a chair, put up your feet and listen to a few stories while the paint dries.
