Oh what a perfect Memorial Day weekend! We had Beautiful weather, we watched our town's little parade and we went to the pool.
I was feeling patriotic, appropriately, on Memorial Day and I wanted to do some painting. I remember seeing Barn quilts all around Tillamook, Oregon a couple summers ago. I love that they are modern and traditional and Americana all at the same time. Barn quilts are usually around 8 feet by 8 feet. My paintings are smaller - 16" x 16", but they are inspired by barn quilts. Now I've got one hanging on my door instead of a wreath. They were easy to make with premade wood panels and lots of painters tape.
