#67, #68, #69, #70, #71

Close ups of barns. #67 is from Brookfield. The farm was left to the county when the only son died in a threshing accident. How do I know that? Because my Grandma was engaged to the man at the time. My great uncle helped build the foundation.#68 is Stoddard. #69 is south of Stoddard up on the ridge. It is across from an Amish farm. I love watching them as I paint. #70 Also up on the ridge. When the farmer asked what I was doing he looked sideways with me. #71 is on Brinkman Ridge Road. I listen to my cousin give the noon news on the radio when painting this, which I don't get to do everyday. I  was so sad from the news that I couldn't paint any longer after finishing up and went home and went to bed for a while.
