On my way back from Roxbury last Sunday, I drove past a number of barns and other structures that I have painted in the past. I always have my camera with me and whenever I go anywhere, I usually take at least a few pictures to use as future reference. This is a photograph of a building that I took last June.
A couple of weeks ago, I finally pulled it out and thought I'd have a go at it.
I liked the cupola and in the past have tried to include them in paintings with little success as I have a tendency to get too fussy with them. However, this time I thought I'd include it, but as an element that is no longer really there. So this is what I did:
Now for the eerie part. On Sunday when I passed the building I nearly drove off the road. No cupola!
The building is being gutted and possibly demolished, but on the very day I saw it, it looked a lot like my painting.
You can pretend that you hear the theme from The Twilight Zone now.
