A photograph of the painting that Minnie Mouse was doing of Goofy's Barnstormer. If you looked out the window of Minnie's House, you could see the Barnstormer attraction. Obviously, Minnie painted this before it was turned into an attraction. I do hope that the Imagineering Archives saved the painting.
