Parking Lot

Painting Description

A crudely lettered sign near the house instructs the participants to park their carriages in the field and to stable their horses in the driving shed. From this north field, it is obvious that the new barn is almost complete. A new barn was built, not because of a fire, but the new young owner wanted a much expanded barn with two levels of stabling. Within two days the barn was filled with animals and feed for them. I was allowed at this barn raising with the understanding that I would “stay out of the way”. This new barn north-east of Linwood is really a re-built structure but its raising provided me with two hundred photographs that served as a basis for ten paintings. You might be interested to note side mirrors from a car that has been mounted on the two-wheeled buggy in the front right corner. I really enjoy noticing these small things that demonstrate humanity.
