I happened upon an abandoned old feedstore last week, quite different from “Amber Grain”, the one in the painting I currently have on display at Union Street Gallery. I had been hoping to find an ancient falling-down gem like this for a future painting, but it seems like these things never turn up when you’re actively looking for them. I was headed to my vet’s barn to visit my convalescing horse (torn ligament–boo!!!) when out of the corner of my eye I saw this wonderful structure which I had passed by many times before without even noticing. It’s tall and sprawling at the same time, and has the intriguing roofline that I love to paint. I shot what seemed like a zillion photos, and will post the winner after I’ve completed the difficult winnowing process. There seem to be so many good angles to choose from!
