Buggy Barn Mural Painting Resumes

I am a local artist and will resume painting at Lehman’s during store hours during the month of March in the Buggy Barn. For those of you not familiar with this project the Buggy Barn at Lehman’s is an actual post and beam Amish Buggy Barn that was dismanteled and reconstructed for their multi-media/demonstration room inside the store. We are recreating the atmosphere of being inside an actual buggy barn by displaying various props, tools, gardening implements and other things commonly found in a buggy barn. My contribution is the addition of the lively painted farm animals! It has already become a tradtion for families to bring their kids to the store to see the farm animal murals and stop for a treat at the cafe while mom (or dad) shop! All ages will enjoy this unique exprience but I especially enjoy seeing the children’s reactions to the playful scenes on their level. I am thinking some cute, fuzzy barn kittens are needed as well as a pair of wooly twin lambs with their momma! I will be posting work in progress photos here regularly. I enjoy your input so stop by often to see it take shape. If you are in the store please stop by to say hi! You can let me know if I missed a spot! For more picutures click on the Mural link on this blog to see whats been painted already.

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
