Painting the Barn on the Flower Farm

For years we threw around ideas about “signage” for the farm, but we were so busy tending other aspects of farm life that we never quite got around to it — until now. Thanks to a casual conversation among friends, we learned that one of our closest friends right here in Blairstown was not only fully capable but willing to tackle painting a mural on our barn. Local artist Gina Danesi Trish completed formal art training at George Washington University and held an artist residency at Peter’s Valley Arts and Craft Center. While “Barn Painting 101” may not have been on the curriculum, it is evident that her training provided all the requisite skills to transform a blank wall into a magnificent canvas. Watch this time lapse video to see how Gina spread a little pixie dust on Little Big Farm.
