Shop Talk by Dave Barnhouse is an Open Edition print. A group of farmers are visiting over the sides of a tractor, while standing out in the rain. A Coca Cola sign is hanging outside the shop. This is a time when people enjoyed just visiting, not in a rush to go somewhere or watch the latest show, but to spend time with a friend or neighbor.
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. The subject matters that interest him range from western images and Native- American scenes, to farmsteads, tractors, classic cars, motorcycles, old trains, and nostalgic scenes in small-town America.
For numerous years Dave has been an officially-licensed artist of The John Deere Corporation. That distinction allows Dave to use their name, trademark and equipment in his paintings. You’ll want to head to the family farm after you spend a few moments viewing his art, prints and posters.
