Sentinel of harvest past

Sentinel of Harvest Past

Piece description from the artist

I'd passed this barn several times along a county road in Northeastern Ohio, and was so drawn to its rustic mystery, that I had to paint it. It seemed like a grand but aged elephant standing guard over its domain. One can imagine the harvest that it once stored, the animals that lived out their lives within, or the wild creatures that now call it home. Original painting has been sold.
