I love old farm buildings. I often feel compelled to grab the camera just for the shapes which remind of me geometric abstract art. I am sure, by now, some art history student has written a PhD thesis on the Influence of Agricultural Architecture on Abstract Art. Does Piet Mondrian’s early workoffer us a clue? Now and then I feel the need to paint one of the buildings I photograph. This rather straightforward painting is of the old granary at Wilder Ranch State Park near Santa Cruz.
