Description Red Barn in the Valley: a wall art print where I used a pointillism watercolor technique creating this scene. This technique uses round dot brush strokes and subdued and subdued colors creating a soft, warm look. This particular wall art print depicts the red barn of a farm in a valley.The setting is rural Iowa in the area surrounding the Amana Colonies in eastern Iowa. The time of year is mid winter with just hints of snow left here and there. The starkness and barren look of the countryside creates a very unique perspective that I tried to capture in this series.Follow my work: TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2013 Kirt D.

Kirt Tisdale, Everett, Washington Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
