Artist's description:

"Mud Road Barn"
Last night's heavy rain left the access road to this old barn a muddy mess. This barn may still be in use but not today. Seeing the mud and standing water made for a unique scene. I love the look of real life farming. The overcast sky reflected in the foreground puddles, the slippery path up to this barn and the aged, weathered wood made the barn seem neglected. This is a unique image of a barn and caught my eye. It reminded me of all the weather a barn goes through during its life. "Mud Road Barn" is one of my abandoned bare series.
Over the last 25 years I've seen many farms and dairies sold then subdivided and houses built. The abandoned barns that remain are falling into disrepair. Last year I began to collect photos of the abandoned barns as reference for painting subjects. The textures and colors of rusted tin roofs, weathered boards and the overgrown landscapes inspired the artist in me. Trying not to paint in a photographic style, feels good to me. I like to see the heavy brushstrokes and thick layering of paint. The surface of the final artwork matches the aged barns and surrounding growth. For me, these paintings are taking on a time capsule effect as I'm afraid these barns will become fewer and harder to find.
