This is the latest
in my long and lean
grain elevator series.
Thank-you to Bill
for the inspiration;
Fuedal, Saskatchewan's
giant landmark.
(Along with the
painting come wishes
for better weather
conditions for
the prairies.)

  1. I love these grain elevators -- and this is magnificent. It feels so totemic. You are such a great painter. I second your wish for better weather for the prairies.

    Take care,

    Barbara

  3. I'm really enjoying how the grain elevator seems to blend into the sky, texturally, but is also powerfully contrasted by color.

    The foreground is pretty luscious, too!

  4. Hi Linny,

    We don't see many of these elevators in the prairies anymore. At one time they were sprinkled all through the countryside. This one has been lucky enough to now be recorded by you for eternity! I think it is a fantastic painting and I especially love the treatment of the sky.

  11. Hello and thank-you, Prabha! I'm attracted to red and it nearly always finds it's way into my paintings - nearly.
