Barns & Farms show, Kewuanee, Wisconsin

The last two years I was fortunate enough to have two paintings chosen for the Barns & Farms nationally juried show in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. Each year I've sold one and then had to return to pick up the other painting. When I left home it was 92 degrees; along the lake in Wisconsin it was 68 degrees. I love driving in farm country and I stopped to paint by this harbor where the Kewaunee river meets Lake Michigan. (Not all that pleased with what I did this time, so I'm not posting that dog.) About 25 miles south of Kewaunee is the town of Two Rivers, Wisconsin along Lake Michigan. There's an old pickup truck parked at a gas station. It's a Chevy short box, either a 1939 or 1940. Despite the high price of gas and the long drive (3 1/2 hours), the scenery and old cars along the way make the journey worthwhile.
