Abstract Art at Wilder Ranch?

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.
