Olema Barn

"Olema Barn" 84" x 72" 
Barn in West Marin
"Between Lines" 40" x 36"


These  old barns are all over West Marin.
The subtlety of the lines and textures of the boards
contrasting with the hard darks of missing ones
seems to give these buildings a quiet strength.

Your barn photos and paintings remind me of beautiful old quilts which were made from fabric torn into strips and stitched together by loving hands who cherish the old enough to make something of it.

Jo, I agree. In fact I often like to describe the surface of my paintings like quilts. I like the idea of random parts all suprisingly put together into one. My Dad- also a painter , lives in Ashland- see his link to his blog on the margin of my blog- Cliff Wilton. Your pictures make me cold just looking at them. Beautiful but cold!
