New: “Vestige” (Commission)

We moved to our town over 20 years ago, and since that time, it has changed and grown. This barn, two decades ago, sat in the middle of a meadow that served as a small Christmas tree farm. Over the years, the trees were harvested (and not replanted), until only a few remained. The barn is in much worse shape today than it was 20 years ago, and most of the meadow was purchased and developed, replacing the treeline with rooflines. Picasso’s quote, “every act of creation is first an act of destruction” seems appropriate, though I doubt he was thinking of residential neighborhoods. Nonetheless, despite the reality of time changing our landscape, we can on occasion see relics from our past that just seem to be hanging on. “Vestige” 40 x 30
