I photographed these pictures of my profile, as a shadow, the other evening in my home.  I was in a melancholy state of mind at the time.  I am happy to say that I am feeling vibrant and alive this evening!

Have a wonderful Monday….remember:  Today is a completely new beginning to the entrance of your future!  If you need a “do-over” TODAY is your day!!!

Blessings….

“Scattered amongst flowers”

Standard

Hello fellow bloggers.  I have not posted in awhile and I am sorry about that.  For some strange reason I have been rather scattered and discombobulated of late.  I do not know why; however, I am trying to get back on track.  Regular blogging and sharing is good for my soul and helps further my creative energy.  You see, even my paintings are somewhat random in their scope and appearance.  I have my mind and goals on something that could potentially be an amazing experience and event and perhaps that is why I am not super-focused.  I am only in the initial stages of brainstorming and planning…but I think I may have something here.  Time will tell.  I am not ready to reveal my plans; however, they have to do with curating, art, and someone famous.  You will have to wait and see.  The great news is that I sold another painting…my largest to date and I am beyond thrilled.  My client lives in Connecticut and she saw the painting on my website.  I had it hanging in a local San Francisco couture baby clothes boutique.  It was great exposure for me but Ms. Connecticut bought it before someone else got their hands on it.  

Below is a random posting of some of my recent little paintings and photographs….scattered though they may be, I am happy with the way they turned out.  Let’s just say I have been in a bit of a floral state of mind.  

And if you get a moment I would love it if you checked out my relatively new website, if you haven’t already:  www.FairesFineArt.com.

Peace and love,

Beautiful Tobacco Barns and a Dilapidated Log Cabin

Standard

Old Barns

I love old barns, the wood all weathered
Always imagine a couple of horses there, tethered.
Big ones, small ones, no matter what size
In the country, you’re sure to see one just over the rise

I love old barns, painted deep red
When inside you know the cows are well fed
And up in the cupola, painted white, 
Out comes the pigeons, taking off in flight.

I love old barns, filled with hay
With a couple of red hens getting ready to lay
And with them struts the rooster all speckled black and white
They’ll return to the hen house before it is night.

I love old barns, no lonager in need
Where many a horse and many a cow have taken their feed
But to the owner I really must pray
Please do not let it rot and tumble away.

I love old barns, way out of town
Where I can drive and dream, and always slow down
For to this day I’ll always remember
When I left the farm it was late September

I do love old barns and log cabins.  I have sweet memories of the log cabin that my father built many years ago on the White River in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I will never forget when he took my brother and me for an hour plus drive south.  We ended up in front of an ancient and dilapidated old, old barn.  I was perplexed and asked my dad what we were doing there?  He retorted, “This is my new house.”  I was flabbergasted and not happy (keep in mind, I was about 7 years old at the time).  He then explained that he was going to have the barn, built around 1834, dismantled and have all of the original logs shipped to Indianapolis to build what would soon become his “new” home.  He did just that.  He had all the logs re-chinked and he built the most beautifully authentic (with a modern twist of course) log home.  It sat atop a gently sloping 3-acre piece of property that led to the banks of the river.  This is where my dad called home….and so did I.  I photographed these barns last weekend.  They remind me of him…God rest his soul. I hope you enjoy viewing them and some of the surrounding areas in Durham, NC.
 
Best,
