This is another painting of one of the "landmarks" of Klamath Basin (Oregon), the Malone Grain Elevator.  Though it doesn't really show it in my painting, this is one of the elevators that is slowly falling down.  It's hard to tell if they will be repaired as they age.  It seems like these elevators might be something that is disappearing along with the small and family-owned farms.  Hope not!

Wonderful work here Vicki!! Love the patterns and sense of movement.

As you might be aware the wooden grain elevator is a Canadian prairie icon. Alas they are slowly dissappearing as is the way of life that was the Canadian prairies.

Love this- can just feel the generations that have lived there and farmed the land.

Great composition and simplification.
Love your figure work as well.
