Property For Sale

I tried to depict the lonely farm buildings that I find to sad to see. On my way to life drawing, I passed a beautiful area that always had horses in the pasture only a few months ago. Now, it's going to be a 16 unit apartment building.

Progress and change are a good thing I'm always told. Hopefully the sellers are happy and moving on to a different life. Maybe I should just paint so we can remember how life was before all the construction came in. Maybe nostalgia will be a good thing. Maybe I should climb off my soap box and let you know I really enjoyed working on this picture. And, just maybe we should just enjoy life and all the wonderful things it has to offer all of us.

How about sharing how you feel about this day and what it has given to you. I'll be waiting to hear from you. Someone, anyone, hello...are you out there?

  1. It is always upsetting to have the type of change you know is coming. We have a beautiful farming area in our valley and the new generations are choosing to sell their land rather than fight and pay for water. Housing developments of ugly Mac- mansions are now visible between the dwindling farms which are left.
    You captured the feeling of space really well in your painting, Blanche.
