Age and Neglect

This large 18x24 oil on canvas I completed yesterday in the studio.  It's the best view of this falling apart barn.  I did an on-site oil sketch of it last week.  It's interesting to think that once there were people who cut the wood, and assembled all the pieces to make this barn a new structure, and that somebody admired it for its newness and promise.  What appeals to me now is the barn's age and neglect.
