This house on the Prairie had a presence that reminded me of family and experiences growing up on a farm in the Midwest. It was something about the light, texture and cool colors of the surfaces that seemed a part of the past. It seemed familiar as if I’d been here many times before, so I had to paint it. Even though it was abandoned there seemed to be something there that drew my attention.

Beautiful!! There's something magical about the old American farmhouses, particularly when run down or abandoned...they seem to beckon one to walk their halls and rooms and imagine the fullness of life that once existed within. Their structures are so simple and proud, their colors so muted as they weathered countless storms. A really beautiful image! Jeanne
