Barn by the River

This adventure took us to an area in western NC called Glendale Springs, NC in Ashe County. The purpose of the trip was to view the fresco by Ben Long at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church located on Highway 16. A fresco, in case you don't know, is a painting on wet plaster. While we were there, we ate at a wonderful place called the Blue Ridge Cafe and Bakery. Right next to the cafe is the Greenhouse Craft Shop. Both of these businesses are located in an old school building and right across from the church with the fresco. And no, as you can see, I did not try to recreate the fresco. The scene for the post card art quilt, however, is of a nearby river and barn. On the left is the photo and on the right is my interpretation of the scene. Check it out and tell me what you think. http://sewupscale.etsy.com/
