Stucco Barn, Exline, Iowa

Stucco Barn, Exline, Iowa

Acrylic collage

This structure has intrigued me because of the shapes and the gnarled tree. I have painted it a number of times and found the sun and shadow patterns interesting. The bright white fence contributed to its character and the textured field beyond. It also has numerous small window opening, probably to dry the hay stored inside. It is still standing on the main highway leading into the small town of Exline. I’m making an attempt to document these midwest structures, as they are disappearing from our landscape.
