Barns are sadly becoming a thing of the past–at least beautiful red barns. I have decided it’s time to start preserving them in the form of paintings. Consider this a fair warning for the coming year. I plan to paint more barns, en plein air as much as possible. This painting was done in my studio and resides in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin.
I don’t have a lot to say this evening, it’s time to go complete some Christmas gifts, but I did want you to know that I have updated my website significantly and am proud to say, there’s an “add to cart” button now available. This painting is available for purchase at KaraMcGhee.com.
I am a curious artist who enjoys stimulating dialogue, exploring perspective and relationship in all things art, life (human and animal kingdom alike) and my beliefs...I avoid politics when possible.
A little background on this blog--I'd been going to an art group for Christians called The Responding and a few months in I decided to respond--yep, I'm a slow one to respond. About the same time my husband wanted me to illustrate some of his children's poetry, which is far from my style. I was praying about it and woke up with the idea to start doodling responses to my morning devotions and hopefully I'd be able to develop a style that could work for poetry. I decided to doodle through My Utmost for His Highest. At first I started with just doodles, then I decided to add a brief thought response on the back of the card. Then one day I thought, "Why keep these to myself, I'll start a Facebook photo page. Eventually it became this blog.
What's planned for the future? When I've doodled through the whole book I plan to do a physical show with them. I will also choose some to develop further and the remainder I will. sell them. All proceeds will go to relieve abuse of all kinds. Currently I'm exploring ministries and orginizations that have credible backgrounds to invest in. More details will be made available as I continue on with this venture. I'm trusting God to lead me.

Nice painting, but I am not sure the shadow on the barn looks right.
Thanks. The shadow on the barn is what attracted me to this scene. I liked that is was/is to me, the star of the show.
