They burned it down much to my dismay...
The historical society couldn't save it. Money couldn't save it. I wish you could have gone in it with me. It was unbelievable...See me shaking my head...
So that lead to my recent daydreaming. I wanted to portray time passing, old things that should stay around don't, and, well you get the picture..(pun)
I got an old barn wood frame about 18 X 24. I used colored glass beads of brown and 2 shades of green and glued them to the outside frame glass as a tree growing on the left side. (There was a tree, on the left. It is gone now too.) I also printed 3 smaller color shots, one of the silos, one of the unique round room attached and one of what was left after the burning. I am using parts of a broken clock in it also.
Ironically, what was left is gone now too. Condos are going in. I guess they don't need trees and or a really unique building at the entrance.
So anyway, I took a black and white slide I had taken early one morning when I first heard they where going to burn it, and tried a couple of different developments. I chose the one I did as to me and the hub it sort of evoked a "ghost of"
Look below, what do you think?
