It all started with the blue sky color, which made me think of those days when the sky is so beautiful it does not look real...and I wanted to paint a barn that looked as happy as the sky... so I painted it a sunshine yellow. This piece is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides. It is finished with a high gloss varnish.
Lesli Devito can't quite remember when she started painting, just that she's been doing it for quite a while now. With no formal training, Lesli took her own path and experimented with different types of paint. Eventually, she settled on something unconventional: acrylic house paint. She hopes that her works will "take people to their happy place." Lesli also created a blog called My Old Country House in which she writes about her life, art and other adventures.
