When we purchased the property there were over 7000 paintings being stored between the large barn, smaller one and the shop. I don’t think anyone, except a handful of people, knew about the previous owner, his art studio in the barn or the amount of his work being stored there. It was truly overwhelming to witness and left me speechless when I went home. The previous owner, Matt Lamb, was a businessman turned world renowned artist and peace activist. He lived a truly amazing life. He felt moved by the Holy Spirit to paint and spread a message of peace, love and tolerance among men. He passed away in 2012. We will display some of his artwork in the barn when it is completed along with his painting suit to honor a life well lived!
