This is a farm south of town, painted it earlier in the winter I think right after the first real snow and cold spell. At one time this was a real nice farm, now it is in decline. The barn has real problems and will be beyond repair soon if someone doesn't do some work on it. Like most of these farm houses now cut off from their farm they just slowly slip away. Once had a friend that lived here and said the place was so cold during the winter that paste froze on the wall when she was trying to put up wall paper. The pines in the fore ground are a new tree planting about 6-7 years old now. The pines are called nurse trees and keep the hardwoods planted between them tight and straight so they produce good timber in about 60 years. Actually the pines will die out from being shaded by about 20 years and then an improvement and release cut will be done at about 35 years and that will set things up for a small harvest 20-30 years later. It will be a true woods by then and grow wood from then on if taken care of by following generations.The painting is 11x15 inches on 300 lb Fabrino Rough Water Color paper and is available, it is priced at $195.
