A TYPICAL NORTH CAROLINA SCENE
This is not a painting but a country scene near where I live. I drove by it the other day and then circled back and took this picture because the lighting was so unusual. The lavender in the sky would seem fake if it had been put there with oil paints.
We have many of these small barns and out-buildings dotting our landscape. This was big tobacco country at one time and every small farm seemed to contribute it’s share of leaves to the industry. Now most of these small fields are planted with soybeans, corn or just plain hay.
Now that I am retired I can spend as much time as I want touring the back roads and it never fails to fill me with awe when I see scenery such as this. It’s a wonderful respite from the rush and stress that seems to be a part of life nowadays.
