Description Amana Colony Barn is a black and white photographic capture a barn. The barn is located in one of the Amana Colonies in Eastern Iowa just south of Cedar Rapids. The design of the barn is what caught my eye with the large opening for a hay wagon to pass through. The time of year was February, so mid-winter with no leaves on the trees. Because of the barren aspect of the trees, I decided to look at this capture in black and white. The monochrome approach captured the mood of the day at this time of year.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2013 Kirt D.

Kirt Tisdale, Sherman Oaks Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
