Description
"A few weeks before Christmas it was a tradition that everyone helped with the decorations," the artist recalls. "With excited anticipation the kids brought the box of holiday lights and garlands from the attic. Grandpa supervised the job. He knew where all the decorations went and even offered his 1940 Ford pickup as scaffolding to help trim the highest point.

The Artist

Dave Barnhouse

Dave Barnhouse is a self-described "country boy" from Richmond, Ohio who grew up in small towns and has no intention of leaving their environs either physically or emotionally. "I want my art to make people feel as if thay were back home on a Friday evening, so thay can experience the warmth of a cozy fire and smell the homemade bread and cookies coming from the oven," he says.

As soon as he could hold a pencil, the artist started expressing his artistic talents. One of his first drawings was a threshing machine on his grandfather's farm in Ohio. "He drew all the little details," remembers his mother, who encouraged her son to pursue his art.
Currently, Barnhouse has settled into the Americana genre, constantly working with illumination and adding a nostalgic touch to make viewers feel they are actually present and a part of the painting.

Barnhouse's works have earned many awards and honors. He was voted America's third most popular print artists of 1995 and 1996 in dealer surveys conducted by U.S. ART magazine. He was included in InformArt's "Top 10 Hotteat New Artists" in 1995 and moved into number three position in 1996. He has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles.
