Recent work: Days Gone By

Here is a 24x36 oil on panel I completed in early October titled Days Gone By.

I happened upon an old overgrown piece of land with this barn and a log cabin on it back in April. It reminded me of my parents farm which has since been abandoned like so many other homes that were built long ago for lives long past.

It currently hangs in The Hartley Gallery along with this poem I wrote as a companion piece.

Lives built long ago by strong, young hands
Fields tended and children born to the Proud
Tire swings and birthdays and fireflies
Sunsets and rain from the back porch

Lives centered around these things built
Coming and going in and out
With warm hellos and proud goodbyes
Familiar voices just in the other room

Lives long ago reflected by the land
These things built now stand quiet and alone
Weeds grown and fallen branch and beautiful
Silent reminders of days gone by




Detail of the barn


Detail of the tractor



Thank you for looking, and I hope you enjoyed this piece.

Thank you both, very much.

Stapeliad, the barn had an old toilet sitting in its doorway! I considered painting it, but thankfully decide to leave it out of the painting. 😃
