"In Need of Repair"
9x12 acrylic on canvas on hardboard
Available through DPW gallery/auction
There are dozens & dozens of these old barns scattered throughout the country. Some are quite old, and need assorted repairs or fixes. And yet, they still stand - which amazes me. There is a woodworker artist in the upstate art group I belong to. He takes parts of old barns & creates furniture - beautiful work. Here's a link to visit his website - wonderful wood working. I recall him talking at one of the art receptions, about saving barns & wood where he can. It's a skill I admire.
But even if a barn is leaning, or sagging, that doesn't mean it is not useful! There are plenty in need of repair, but they keep on going. Much like people, don't you think?
