Old friends asked me to paint their home here in the town of Olive. They recently had their barn painted a true "barn red". It made a nice contrast with the evergreens in the back and the lawn which
was still green when I took the photo. The leaves were still on the apple trees in the front lawn, but I did take some artistic license with them. They weren't quite this full of foliage. The trees are old and my friend said he soon will have to cut them down. I wonder how old they are?
