Preflight Check at Kitty Hawk is a poster by Dave Barnhouse
Dave Barnhouse recreates the best of times in his definition of rural and small-town America. His paintings are snap shots of life the way he remembers it from the 1950`s and 60`s. “Collectors tell me they often put themselves in my art. It`s a way we all can relive some of the happiest moments of our youth,” says Dave.
Growing up in small towns in Ohio, Dave Barnhouse has never forgotten the values learned in his youth. His art, prints and posters of Friday night cruising, tractor pulls and main street businesses remind us of simpler days in our past.
Today Dave works mostly with oil paints. But, 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.
Most of Dave Barnhouse`s work has settled into the Americana genre, as he constantly works with illumination and adds a nostalgic touch to make viewers feel they are actually present and part of the painting.
