This was painted from a photograph taken this past December. It is one of the grain elevators located outside of Groom, Texas on historic Route 66. During the summer months, the elevators are a hub of activity, but on the day that I stopped to photograph this one, it was as quiet as a ghost town.
Also, this is my entry for the Daily Paintworks "Help Japan Challenge." If you haven't had a chance to check out the entries, please do. Thus far, they have raised $24,081!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
