We didn’t travel much when I was a kid so when we went to Grammys it was a big deal. The trip seemed to take forever, and often I’d experience the pleasantries of car sickness. Grammy’s place was on a farm, so there was a barn and wide open fields to roam in. It was somewhere the imagination could soar. What really made it special was that it was Grammy’s home, she being one of the sweetest Irish women you could ever meet.

Today’s painting is of a shed. In the hierarchy of architectural forms the lowly shed must rest somewhere near the bottom.  I find it hard to explain why I’m drawn to these minor buildings. Maybe it’s their scale, or the hint of surprises hidden within those squared off walls; whatever it is, they do intrigue me.
