The Raiche Farm: Danby, VT

Early this morning I went over to the Raiche farm to paint and sketch. I had limited time and spent most of it in frustration because I was putting too much pressure on myself to capture a childhood memory perfectly. When this happens the best thing I can do is remind myself that if I want my art to look like a photograph I should take a picture, not try to draw the scene. below are sketches of:

Some Yankee ingenuity: an old steel drum with part of it cut away a large brush mounted inside and hooked to a motor.
Old cow stanchions
looking into the hay loft
The front of the barn

  1. I have such great memories of growing up being in the barn. The sketch of the open stantion brought me back there, thanks for the wonderful moment. Love you, Pat J.
