Also in Shipman Va. there are some older homes that have collapsed due to age and weatherization of the with which they are built. There was this one which I used as a subject for this canvas that had the railroad track right next to it. I painted it with homes of bringing some life back into it. Its color was such that the only remaining colors where a bleached wood with some indigo blue and a black/brown combination. So I played with it and this was the result. I am thankful it was still standing because it seems to be on its way out.
