"Old Guthrie Grain Mill"
12 x 16 Oil
I began this painting at the old mill but had to finish in the studio. The rusted old buildings intrigued me. Many think they should be torn down... that it is an eye-sore. I look at this mill as a part of history. I wonder how many farmers with horse-drawn wagons used deliver their grain there.... I imagine them standing around talking with each other, awaiting their turn to unload. I am sure they talked about the upcoming weather, or the prices of the grain, maybe how their family made it through the drought....
