Built by my Great Grandfather in the 1800's, this barn remains stalwart while the rest of the homestead returns to the earth from which still springs beautiful ancient grains. Just outside of Humboldt Saskatchewan, home, until my Father was called to the war as a romantic young man of 18.
Grandma and Grandpa's farm remained a focal point for our family of 7 for many glorious, adventurous summers. One never tires of remembering and to have been able to see it again, paint it on site, and to immortalise it by my own hand was indeed a special pleasure.
This painting and 4 others will be part of a special "Wine Festival Art Gallery" in the Village on Silver Star Mountain a satellite gallery of Gallery Odin. The special two day gallery as well as the main gallery on 2-215 Odin Road, will show and sale the works of several local artisans - show times and locations here
