Ohio Barn

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
– Carl Jung

Ohio Barn – 10″ x 7″ Watercolor on Masa

This was another fun one.  I quit fiddling with it after an hour and a half, to let the simplicity remain.  Masa paper makes me want to fiddle with detail, because it’s so much fun to see it develop.  🙂

The image was from Catherine at WetCanvas.

We got a little rain shower this morning!  It was wonderful.  It may not do much to help our drought, but it was great, just the same.

About Carl Jung

Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who originated such well-known psychological concepts as the archetype and the collective unconscious, has provided inspiration to people ranging from Joseph Campbell to Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. He was born in 1875 in a small town; he studied with Sigmund Freud before parting ways due to the radical difference in their views of human nature. Jung is considered second only to Freud in his influence on modern psychology, particularly in the area of dream analysis. He died in 1961.

    What ever happened to the red barn with the ads on the roof or sides, those were cool. Nicely done, as always!

      Funny you should ask, Ryan! I got a call last week from someone wanting me to paint a sign on their barn. I turned it down, but it was still cool to be asked. Thanks for the nice comment. 😀

    I don’t know which one I like best, anymore. All of these are beautiful. This is a big sky and it came out gorgeous! Love the red barn and the spring green color of the grass. This looks like home, even down to the way the fence is done; wire and wood. Love it…
    Oh. We had a spot of rain twice, too. Areas around here have had downpours but it keeps missing my section of Fort Wayne. Grass crackles underfoot.
