Description This old barn is no longer standing, but it was once located north of Atlanta, GA on Hwy 53 east of the intersection of Hwy 53 and GA 400. According to local residents, it once served as the area's first Post Office.Original oil painting done from a photo that I took around the year 1994.
Vivian Eagleson, Joppa Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement My interest in art began at a very eary age. My mother taught art as a school teacher and gave private instruction as well. Like my mother, my art reflects the beauty of God's creative work in nature. I went to art shows with my mother and sold my first painting when I was 15 years old. I still have the receipt for that first sale. Since then I have made many more sales and have even won a few awards at art shows. When I was in High School I was Art Editor on the Annual Staff my Junior and Senior years and was voted Most Talented Girl in my graduating class. I graduated Auburn University with a Bachelor of Science Degree and later I studied Nuclear Medicine Technology in Atlanta, GA. I continued my interest in art and attended several workshops and showed my paintings at local art shows. After living in the Atlanta area for a number of years, I decided to return home to my roots in rural north Alabama where I reside with several dogs and cats and my God given love of art.
