"The Old Eble Barn"
oil on panel
The old Eble Barn was a stately landmark in Wisconsin for many years. It took two days for 36 men to raise the barn in 1936, but it stands no more. The barn was such a familiar part of the Brookfield landscape, standing firm as Blue Mound Road developments came closer with each passing year. When I heard of the coming destruction of the barn, I spent a day sketching on the grounds and taking photos.
This painting can be purchased from my Etsy shop by clicking here. This 12 x 12 inch original oil painting comes is in a solid wood, black, 'floater' frame. ("These unique frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it". -Blick)
