The Barn

I discovered Ryan Russell when my husband gave me the painting “Barn in Ground Fog” as an engagement present several years ago.  (A similar painting is shown on the gallery link here.)

Our barn hangs in our living room, a reminder every day of the shelter and  home that is our relationship.  I plan to say a lot more about The Barn and what it means in my life, through my marriage but also my friendships.

For now, I just want to share the image and the idea.  I’ve been up since 3:30 a.m., concerned about a lot of things that are not stable and secure in my world.  But I’m here writing downstairs under the calming shadow of The Barn, both the painting and the love.

He’s resting peacefully upstairs.
