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.

Commissioned Watercolor Portrait by Donna Berk Barlup

I just finished this commissioned portrait for a friend.  I was very pleased with the finished painting, as was the client.  It is to be a gift so I hope the recipients of painting are as pleased as we were.  
If you are interested in a painting as a gift for yourself or someone else, now is a good time to send in your photos.
