Rustic Barn Lover

I just love barns! I have drawn a lot of barns over the years but I never get tried of seeing or drawing old barns. It seems like they are fast disappearing from the family farm. A pen and ink drawing will lock our favorite barn forever in our memory. It is really great how God uses our talents to bring great joy to others. Every drawing that I do this year will have a fish symbol hidden in it. 2010 drawings also had a hidden fish symbol.

I have a lot of great childhood barn memories. It was always fun hunting eggs or finding new kittens hiding in the hay. My brother and I would spend hours in our barn swing on the hay rope, build secret rooms and making hay forts.

After a brainstorming session it was decided that, since I am always up for a challenge, the newest and hardest self-imposed challenge yet would starting March 1, 2011. I will draw 100 barns in 100 days! That is the easy part. The hard part is the drawings will be 5"x7". As most of you know I never draw buildings smaller than 8"x10" and usually must custom drawings are at least 16"x20" and often 20"x24". The reason for the smaller drawings is to make them more affordable so anyone who has been wanting a TerpCreek original drawing could afford one. Most original TerpCreek Art is owned by high income collectors, CEOs and business owners.

I am really excited about starting this project and people are starting to send me barn photos just incase I run short of ideas. I will have to schedule my drawing time very well as I will be doing a Pet Portrait Promotion and custom artwork at the same time.  I have also promised to deliver two original drawing to the Freeport Museum in April for their Masterpiece Art Show which is in May.

The barn drawings will be for sale on eBay (type TerpCreek in the search box to find the drawings). This will be a great way to get an original TerpCreek drawing at a bargain price. All drawings will come in a black mat with gold trim, signed, dated and with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Join the "Barn Lover" group and get a chance once a week to buy one of these original barn drawings without having to bid on it. Once a week I will email you a picture of the barn that is available for purchase to those in the Barn Lover's group. The first person to email me that they want to buy it will get it.

It is free to become a "Barn Lover" just email me at put barn lover in the subject line. That is all there is to become a "Barn Lover. In the future there will be barn items that only Barn Lovers can buy. Barn Lovers will also get specials offers. I will not sell or share your email address with others. So get excited and join the Barn Lovers!
