Off I-40

                 Off I-40

This watercolor is of an old dilapidated barn off of I-40 going east to Nashville. It sat back away from the expressway off a small dirt road just out of sight, and I was so taken by its character that I had to paint it . I painted several versions of it as a matter of fact. All old barns tend to have their own personality, just as people do-as they become older, they look more interesting-probably because they've been thru so much. This old barn gave many animals shelter for many years. This is a part of Americana that is rapidly and sadly disappearing from our nation's landscape. The lush colors and the dark blue sky echo that there was a thunderstorm just a few minutes ago.
