High Hopes

This one is the latest from
my grain elevator series
(these old wooden buildings are one of my
few memories of the prairies).
This one is a "sunny side of the tracks,
long and leaner".
Thanks to Erik and the Skiff, Alberta elevator
for the inspiration.

    "You" have expressed it vertically... dramatically... and truthfully Linny! A beautiful elevator tribute!

  7. I love the way this building pops out as it rises up into its dreams of plenty.

    You have painted again with brilliance and reached high mastery here.

  8. Hi Linny,

    What you do with clouds makes me want to sing.
    In fact the yellow, the magnificent structure and
    the clouds have got me singing. You absolutely rock.

  17. Hi Linny,
    I love your elevator paintings and your other work as well. I have painted an elevator or two, but yours are so wonderful - each has it's own personality.
