This work was inspired after taking a detour on a country road. It impressed
me so much the first time I saw it that sunny Winter day that I knew I
had to capture its beauty as an iconic symbol of farm life in Western
Pennsylvania. Each plank of siding on this barn I decided to paint a different
shade of red, which is why it took over thirty three hours to complete.
