This is an original watercolor of historic, rare octagonal barn in Hastings, Michigan. I can paint a custom painting of your favorite scene, from your photo, imagination, or memory! Prices will vary depending on your subject and size.
Gorgeous watercolor painted with only two colors - Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber. The two color palette gives it amazing color harmony. The sky has a beautiful cobalt wash, which my photos didn't capture very well. You can see the lovely texture of the watercolor paper where the blue sky washes have settled into the paper. It's an unusual painting with lots of lovely watercolor texture and detail.
The subject is a rare octagonal-shaped barn near Hastings, Michigan, with grasses, milkweeds and a bright bluebird on a fence post in the foreground. There are only 4 octagonal barns left in Michigan.
This painting is beautifully matted with acid free white mat board and a medium brown liner mat.

Review of Bedroom wall art
by Karlyn Jun 30th 2013
Mary Jill is an exceptional artist. She took our "idea" and created the most beautiful works of art - 3 pieces. She sent us drafts of the works and communicated with us frequently on the progress. She also created a 4th piece that we hadn't considered - it was perfect and we bought all 4! She delivered exactly as promised. We definitely plan to work with Mary Jill in the future and we highly recommend her - for both her talent and her professionalism. Thank you Mary Jill!!

by cutlemic May 22nd 2013
I needed helpl putting together a graduation poster for four cousins, one of which is no longer with us,but we wanted to somehow include him. It turned out fantastic. Mary Jill Lemieur was so easy to talk to , she understood my ideas and created something really beautiful. She communicated to me all through the process and was able to meet my short timeframe. I love the poster and I loved the experience.
