From inside the loft of the Eggers Barn in

Mountain City, TN at sunset, you would swear you were looking at the biggest stained glass window anywhere. Aileen played here as a child, and carried God’s unconditional love with her everywhere she went.

Original water media painting is 6.5 feet x  5 feet on 140 lb paper.

In this painting I have pushed contemporary depth and negative space. Viewers standing on front of the big painting tell me it is positively three dimensional.

Original chalk pastel is 22” x  30”.

The big barn on my grandparent’s farm was built in the 1880’s.

One side where we tied tobacco faced west, towards the sunset.

In the fall the interior positively glows.
