Nashville News

Its been a bit, but I’m still blaming that on not having a working computer. Nashville is great and I’m starting to settle in. I love my job at The Farm, a dog daycare Franklin,TN and its the best. I’m an official volunteer at Rocketown. I’ve been riding a lot and will be filming a new  edit soon. I try to paint new ideas and that leads me here…

I have 2 paintings for sale and maybe you can help share with friends or purchase yourself.

12″x9″ full color print, matted and framed. True to the original.
Asking $35 (includes shipping)

This is the first time I’ve really put effort into getting stuff printed and trying to share it with people. I haven’t had money for film, so I paint instead. Please share this with friends and consider helping make these types of pieces happen more often. I eventually will have a more accessible way for my art to be bought via webstore, so this is only temporary.

If you are interested in either piece, email me at: jbarnett1025@yahoo.com.

Side thought: I believe the arts are valuable to society and have been reading a book called “The Gift” by Lewis Hyde, which was so graciously give to me by my dear friend Kyle Adem (check out his music and new album “Armor” at http://www.kyleadem.com). I’m learning to embrace the arts as gifts and the value of a gift is a beautiful thing. I have an asking price for the paintings to cover materials, printing, shipping, etc… but if you are somehow encouraged/touched by these paintings and cannot afford the asking price, disregard it. I’d rather have someone enjoy what I created and lose money, than hold to a bottom line. In the same token, if you find these worth more than I ask, feel free to give as desired. I have bills, living costs, financial emergencies just like everyone else, but it isn’t about that. I’m hoping to do my part in helping to build up a genuine community of artist who have gifts they want to share and recipients who understand the weight of a gift.

Please share and comment! I’d love to start interacting more with those of you that take the time to look at my photos, read my thoughts and enjoy my art. I truly appreciate your support and cannot thank you enough!

Hold Fast Hope
