Beside our farmhouse, we have an old barn. It was built in 1859, and has an old abandoned stove in the back room. We keep a small flock of chickens in there they all insist on using the stove as a nesting spot, but they each must take turns!
Ever since we moved to this farm in 1996, I always said I'd paint this view from my kitchen window...well, here it is, finally! Our cows are always curious about new things. I think they are wondering about the winter decoration I put on the pump.
My family held a reunion last summer at my sister's farm. Many of my relatives are still Old Order Mennonites who dress plain. It was a very warm day so they hung their hats in the tree. This inspired me to paint, thus "Family Reunion" was created.
Wading by Erb's bridge was my favorite summer-time spot in my childhood. This is a picture of my children visiting that same wonderful spot! Erb's bridge is located in Lititz, Pa.
Fun at the Pump
'Precious,' our Golden Retriever, had puppies - what fun! The children put them in the pump to play. 'Freckles,' our new kitten, also wanted to get in on the fun.
Feeding Time Fun
'Feeding Time Fun' is a picture of my two year old son during our daily outing of feeding the chickens. On this particular day we treated them to corn right from the corn field!
My Great Aunt Annie
My daughter Annie is watching her great Aunt Annie working at her sewing machine, braiding rugs she made from rags.
A Golden Retriever puppy was given to us when we moved to the farm; she quickly became our beloved dog. We named her "Precious." Through the years much fun was enjoyed, like this moment with my son and the wash tub!
Puppy and Me
On the edge of our yard stands a tall, graceful Weeping Willow tree. Under the curtain-like branches we've husked corn, held tea parties and had story time like Annie has here with her teddy named "puppy."
Recently rescued from slaughter, our gentle Belgium horse "Goliath" is living out pleasant days in our pasture. Here he is enjoying the company of my oldest daughter, Bethany in the late afternoon sunshine.
