|"This Old House," 5 1/2 by 7 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper|
I've always been attracted to abandoned rural buildings, I think because they spur my interest about the lives and stories that are probably long lost and forgotten. As a photographer I've almost always stopped to get photos of the vacant windows and weathered siding of farm houses, of barns, or sheds.
To me they're not sad, but adventures in imagination, adventures along the back roads. Those are adventures in happiness.
Today's painting was inspired by this photo by @DewEze on Facebook, thanking farmers for not taking off work in cold weather.
