Another Barn


Same route another barn on a vineyard.
Dry Creek Road outside of Healdsburg, California.
January is suppose to be our cold rainy season.
The sun was not out this particular day, but for the past week it feels like spring.
We need the rain but I love spring.
I keep thinking our area will be in for rain but later, and maybe not stop kind.
While I read the bloggers I follow I see their weather!
Snow, bleak days, and home bound.
I am so grateful for living in Sonoma County, California.
No complaining from me...

Below is the same photo except the dirt was left on bottom side.
And I tried to paint it with a digital program.
I was inspired today by a visit to a new friends home.
She and her husband are artists.
They had paintings all over their home, it was lovely.
I can't hand paint, but I can tinker with colors and programs.
Sometimes a person needs to stick to what they know.
But is sure fun trying.

I think you did a great job one the texture etc. to make that second one look like a painting. Keep up the good work.

I think you did a great job - I would love that in my bedroom. Hopefully I will be able to visit a winery in California in the near future.

Hello Jane, I love what you did with these Beautiful photos. Great processing! They really do look like paintings. Love your technique.
It looks so warm and beautiful there. And yes it is very cold, with lots of snow here. I, and so many are looking soooooo forward to Spring.
I am so glad you are enjoying the warm weather where you live.
