My Life and My Art

My name is Barrie Farrell, and I've had a full life. I was born in the 1930's on the west coast of Canada. I had many adventures as a kid growing up on the coast, and I've worn many hats. I started building boats at the age of fourteen, with nothing but a few rusty hand tools. That inspiration grew to a great boat-building career for me. Since then, I've been a writer and a singer, and, I figured I did okay doing all that other stuff. Why not try my hand at painting? Here are a few of my favourite paintings.
