|A Required Change Upward for Us ALL.
To My Facebook Followers ... Thank You!
My Facebook page has seen a GIANT increase by the Hundreds in just a few days.
"Most of these new postings ARE NOT My Cup of Tea!"
The time to read each and reply to each has pulled me away from my easeI.
I am OLD SCHOOL.
That means respect ALL and reply. However the majority postings on Facebook have nothing to do with shared interest. So I have elected to step aside. My focus is on my Friends, Patrons and Collectors.
Do YOU GOOD FOLK have any idea how GOOD it has been over the decades just to share your experiences, your families and Yes, your Ups and Downs. I am SO Grateful God has allowed me to get to know each of you. And yes there are thousands of YOU!
Plus those hoping to join, "The Barry Barnett Collection."
So, "BE OLD FASHIONED," with US. And what is wrong with a FLA Redfish Breakfast ... way of life?
Kindly let me hear from you.

What's New ... Again?
"Barry's FLA Gold Series"
FIVE NEW Originals Available NOW at $125,000.00 Each.
Fine art reproductions start at $125.00 each unframed.
Be Sure to Ask about these five originals as yet to be posted.
"Gator Landing - Bulow Creek"/Painter's Lair
Where does a Bull Gator rest. Any place it wants!
"Hog Huntin' - Bulow"/Painter's Lair
From behind the dunes through the salt marsh land to the back piney county of Bulow Creek is Painter's Lair.
It is said that a Florida Panther walks around 105 miles a day. While in constant patrol of its Painter's Lair hogs and tidewater white-tailed deer watch for this shadow walker. Should you find yourself stranded one foggy night along Bulow Creek with a strange feeling you are not alone. Then it maybe time for you to get back into your car.
"Catfish Bend - Bishop's Swamp"
That catfish is over five feet long.
You say I ain't never seen no catfish that big? Well it may have been at least 60 inches. Find him in Bishop's Swamp and you are at, "Catfish Bend." Never try to catch him. He did not get that big by being a mullet.
"Tidewater Swamp Deer - Bulow Creek"
This tidewater white-tail swamp deer is seen here along Walter Boardman Road.
That location is west of the old Bulow Creek wooden bridge north of the Crab Hole. This is hunting lair of a Florida panther Ms. Willa and the good folk around 1905 called, "Old Painter." But that is another story about a young woman reaching middle-age. Her love for her Prince Albert and coon hunting with Mr. Moses. That place was the Bulow Creek Packinghouse. Yes, just across the saltwater marsh and that Famous Crab Hole.
"Bishop's Swamp - The Bear"
Where is Bishop's Swamp? Only Mr. Bishop knows.
And let us not forget the Florida black bear as well.
"A Pleasant Surprise"/Haw Creek Ranch
From: "Big Sam" The Book
"Couragious Crossing - Painter's Lair"
Bulow Creek North of Ormond Beach, Fla.
"Painter," is another folk name for Panther. In this original; A Florida Panther.
"Showers of Blesings - A Song of Hope"
Hurricane Erma, 2017
Blue Creek Lodge Road (Kinda) South Lake George, Fla.
This original was a gift to the People of Florida, Florida Senate, Dist. 12.
A gift in Honor of The Astor Four and the Pastor's wife under That Pink Hat.
Four servants of Christ who put their life interest on hold for the good folk of Astor.
A story of personal Faith and Work in the flood waters of Lake George, FLA.
"Hog Crossing"/ Haw Creek
Flagler County, FLA.
An original taken from the pages of a book of which pages are still being missspelled.
A tall tale about a bull gator the good folk called "Rufus." And yes a Florida black bear who done mischief, "Old Black Paw." For the educated up north ... If you can not read Florida speak, best Ya' stick to looking at the pictors. Just joking!
"Hard to Port"/Saint Augustine, Fla
Been there. The second Bridge of Lions.
Give a hand. She is turning hard to port against an out going tide; on a full moon with a noreast wind.
Here a British frigate heads for open ocean past the Saint Augustine Fort.
Orders given, "Nor-By-Nor-East."
And so it was, home to England.
This new work in fine art paper and canvas reproduction has joined
"The Spirit of Saint Augustine" and "The Spirit of Saint Johns,"
within, "The Barry Barnett Collection."
"Spirit of Saint Augustine"
Wait 'til a morning fog just as the sun comes up over Saint Augustine's inlet. She is there.
When will this happen? When the City stops dreaming of better days gone bye and gets to digging a deep water port.
"Spirit of Saint Johns"
Remember the push boats and barges that ran the Saint Johns River?
One day you will be having coffee at Palatka's Famous Diner. Good folk will drop their forks and knives. The waitress and cook will be the first out the double doors. What's all the goings on? The Spirit of Saint Johns is making her run and right on time. But there ain't no push boats on the Saint Johns River anymore. Still Ain't! Everybodys gone Nuts!
Wonder if they have any sweet potato pie.
