Artist's description:

"The Old Sunflower Barn"
I love the contrast of a thriving, living field of sunflowers against a lifeless, abandoned barn. The bright yellow sunflowers attracted me and inspired me to show someone still worked the land but had no need for the barn. I placed the painting's focus on the sunflowers to help show a forgotten barn.
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.
