This original oil painting study "The Collin's Barn" by American Artist, Bernie Rosage Jr. is available for purchase at my store.

The subject for this painting is from an old photo taken some years back of the Collin's old pack house... the barn is being claimed by mother nature and neglect now and is only a remnant of what we see here. I have painted this old barn several times... it is located on the road I grew up on. The other special thing about this painting is that it was painted as a demonstration for Mrs Nickle's 8th grade art class at New Bridge Middle School in Jacksonville, NC. I occasionally do these art demos to help promote the arts to young minds and artists. The class was very receptive and asked some great questions.... check out the video below to get a glimpse of the cool day I had yesterday...
