McCleary Farm

McCleary Farm
Oil on masonite,  12x9
As we drove down Burnt Prairie Blocktop heading south, we saw this amazing farm and had to put on the brakes!  Pulling through the circle drive, I went up to the side door to ask permission to paint. Jimmy Joe McCleary graciously gave his permission, and visited with us all afternoon while we painted!  Sharing his hard pears right off the tree with us, it was a wonderful day spent on a truly fabulous historic 1872 farm!  I hope to make it back next year to capture their three story barn in oils!  This is painting number 1014 in 1014 days :)
