The daily dose of art Consider the Grain Elevator

These sentinels of the prairie will not let go of me.  For a while I was photographing everyone I saw but had to stop because my files were being over run by them.  I've lost count of the number of times I painted them.

This first painting is the first one I did, showing a grain facility in Delaware, about 20 miles south of Wilmington.  It has since been demolished.

The second piece is one of my imagined grain elevators, inspired by all that I saw on my firs cross country drive through the plains states.
