This gallery is the result of a mural painted in the parking garage of the Farmstead – a senior living facility. It’s built on an old farm site that includes a round barn, which Paul has already painted many times. This was done in the heat of summer two years ago.
The old barn stood strong for ages, with nary a bruise to its sides,
Through storms, hard times, through births and deaths, her sturdy timbers survived,
If a structure contains strong bones, it always can be restored,
When those who chose to rebuild it, have faith which can’t be ignored,
The heart to bring back her glory, offers sweat and blood and tears,
The result outshines the labor, providing many more years,
Its function may change with the times, but still it remains the same,
A strong, old barn with newfound dreams, new life it will now inflame,
We can reap such restoration, when faith is built on the Rock,
That strongest of all foundations stays active around the clock.
