Digital Art - Digital Art / Photography Based Digital Hand-painting
One of the things I love best about photography is meeting with other photographers. I'm fortunate to have a great group of friends who are within driving distance of me, with whom I love getting together occasionally. A day in June, 2010, saw one such day ... which started out raining buckets as we toured the state house in Harrisburg, but which cleared up beautifully when we branched out into the countryside. The Centennial Barn at Fort Hunter, Harrisburg, PA, is the location of this particular capture.
If you were paying attention, you'll notice I mentioned the photo, on which this digitally painted image is based, was taken in June, yet there is a distinct autumnal feeling to this one. Thank you, Photoshop!! It being early October as I write, I'm in a fall-kind of mood and I get to do things like change the seasons with a swipe of my Wacom pen (think of it as a magic wand, I know I do!!)
This glorious barn was built in 1876 and housed the budding dairy milk business of John Reilly. Constructed with Gothic Revival details in typical German bank barn form, the structure graciously housed the 19th century Fort Hunter Dairy.
Today the Centennial Barn is used as a community meeting center which may be rented for weddings, meetings and parties. It was named the Centennial Barn in modern times. My thanks to the Fort Hunter Mansion & Park website for the info.
