Untitled ( Landscape with old barn )

This old barn sits on a neighboring property about a mile from me - I have always found this structure and grounds interesting; remnants of hard times -

Painting: Oil on canvas panel, 14 x 18; Palette: Yellow Ochre Pale, Burnt Sienna, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber, Cremnitz White -

Comments and suggestions always welcome -

Thank you for viewing - Hud

Great textures going on in this and that old building had lots of charm. Nice!

Gary: Thank you - Appreciate you stopping by -

This was an experiment with using a very limited earth tone palette; wanted to see what I could do with such - I thought this old barn would be the ideal candidate for my venture -

Again, thanks -

Caroline: Appreciate you viewing and your comments -

Yes, the Prairie swallowed up a great many homesteaders; particularly during the "Dirty 30's" - There are hundreds of old homesteads laying waste here; all shattered dreams -
