Death's Door

I am done with the shows. Back to work I guess. This was in Door County this summer. I went past here recently and the barn fell over. I was upset when I painted a little study of the place but I didn't feel like that emotion came through as much as I wanted. I just wanted the sun to feel like it was pressing down on the building, like it was stark and sad, but also beautiful in its' last moments. Like looking in the sun, we don't see so much. Turns out I sold the study before I even did the larger one and I worked from a drawing and from memory.
