Jesse Barnes


Mad Hat had a post a while ago about owning a piece of art. Real art. Not the stuff that your child brings home and papers the fridge with. She shared a painting she had.

I was into blank white walls before I met Rob, so when he suggested we invest in a painting while we were in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, I was bit out of my depth. We were strolling through a gallery and discovered the work of Jesse Barnes. He does “light paintings” which means that as the light in a room changes throughout the day, so does the shadowing and colors in the picture. And the painting that hangs in our living room is of the Tetons in Idaho where Rob and I first “met”. Well, physically anyway.
