|2009-10-05 - Check out this barn find!!|
|A New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home in Portugal. The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 years. The owner and wife both died, and there were no heirs. The house was sold to pay the taxes.There were several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors that had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go through the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property, so nobody made an offer on the place.
The New York man bought it for over half of the properties worth, moved in, and set about to tear down the barn. Curiosity was killing him. So he and his wife bought a generator and a couple of grinders and cut through the welds.

With a passion for the automobile that started in his childhood, Michael Irvine has chosen to focus his artistic talent on capturing American muscle cars in watercolor. His unique approach to this traditionally 'loose' medium, and ardent eye for detail produces clean, sharp images that are alive with color and narration. Michael’s use of reflective surfaces and ‘hidden’ images along with his incredible attention to technical accuracy, make his paintings highly captivating.
