This painting is based on the source photo shown below. It was taken many years ago, on the same day as the source for my painting #O64: Lonely, Lonely. It is the front entrance of an old building on an abandoned diary farm.
The painting is not bad, but I feel it does not really do anything other than represent the photo. The sky is too dark and the roof too red. Lots of room to improve on the second try!
A Meeting In a dream I meet my dead friend. He has, I know, gone long and far, and yet he is the same for the dead are changeless. They grow no older. It is I who have changed, grown strange to what I was. Yet I, the changed one, ask: "How have you been?" He grins and looks at me. "I have been eating peaches off some mighty fine trees." Wendell Berry, from The Collected Poems of Wendell Berry.
