Old Barn

I drove by this barn on my way to Shenandoah, Iowa. Big greenish flies, like the ones you see gathered around the eyes of livestock, attacked my bare legs until I had to move inside the car and draw looking through the windshield.


  1. i love the gentleness of the forms and shades, and if not for you mentioning the greenish flies, this would seem to me a friendly (rustic) place.

  2. The way you captured the “see-thru” is focuses the eyes to the best part of the sketch.
