Painting Barns With Coffee
Mary McAuslin primarily paints with watercolors. But she had discovered a new medium that delivers a nostalgic look and paints as well as watercolors: instant coffee!
Painting old barns lends itself perfectly to painting with coffee, as it gives the look of old weathered wood. “If I spill it or dribble it or flick it, it doesn’t matter!” Mary said.
Her works are mainly of barns she has seen near Lakeview, Oregon, where her daughter and son-in-law live. The barn with the quilts is in Tennessee.
Mary’s paintings are on display at the Bird Dog Museum in Grand Junction, TN and at On the Square Gallery & Gifts in Bolivar, TN.
