Duck Decoys

Duck Decoys
One day while out antiquing, I walked into a very dark, old barn filled with all sorts of interesting items. These duck decoys sat on a ledge by a window. The sun was bright and warm and beyond the barn was a barnyard with chickens. The contrast of the dark inside and the bright outside caught my eye and I snapped several photos for future paintings.

The Old Timer

Another place I am drawn to is junkyards. I love to see old rusty machinery. The structure and textures fascinate me. I am sure this old car was a prized possession in its day. Now it a sat in the scrapyard with other broken, rusty relics.

"Wind Mill Creek Farm Footbridge". An Original Watercolor Painting by Donna Berk Barlup

 " Wind Mill Creek Farm Footbridge"
An Original Watercolor Painting by Donna Berk Barlup

                   Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters were invited to spend an      
                     afternoon in Port Royal at a beautiful farm with a 1790's stone 
                     farmhouse by Nancy and Eric Olsen.  The day was perfect!    
                   We sat outside, painted and enjoyed delicious food and wine      
                    and good company.  We even got to take home a bouquet of 
                                   zinnias from their flower garden.
                  This little footbridge covered a culvert beside the old farmhouse.  
                                                 It was charming.  
                 Many thanks to the Olsens for sharing their home with the artists.
