On almost any ranch in the West, you can find some old building that has been repurposed to hold the artifacts of life. Discards and treasures are jammed atop one another. The paint peels, the windows coat with dust, and some of the panes break. To me, this old chicken coop personified the generations of ranchers who have lived on this land. Like the eyes of the old, these clouded windows hide a full life, hard sometimes to elicit or understand, but with occasional clear glimpses into that past.

All of my works are professionally matted and framed, with non-glare conservation glass. Please note that the dimensions above are for the image only; the framed work is larger. You can contact me for a description and photo of the painting fully framed.
