Renie Rutten, Cedar Rapids, NE Member Since October 2012 Artist Statement I was born and raised in "small town" Nebraska and grew up on the farm. It breaks my heart today to visit the farm where I was raised and everything is gone.
The beautiful old barn we spent hours in as children, our home, all of the out buildings and even the pens where we raised cattle. Everything is gone and replaced by farm ground and pivots.
I enjoy the country life and want to capture in pictures the old farm landscapes before they are all torn down and gone forever.
Enjoy the pictures, comment on what you like and tell me what you'd like to see.
