Old Home Place by JohnDSmith

What is poor ???
When I was a kid,.. a home of this style would have been so grand.
This is a popular style out on the open prairies of Oklahoma.
It`s really very sad that most of them look like this abandon house.
If I had the money to buy them,…..I`d fix them up for some needy family out there.
I`m sure there`s a little boy,or little girl out there in the world that would love to live in a home of this style.

I took this shot north of Watonga,Oklahoma U.S.A.
I painted it in PSE 9,…and then painted it some more Topaz Simplify.

    Nice work John. Could this old place be renovated ????

  • Hi Al,….Could it be renovated,……No !,…it`s been setting abandon for way to many years,….But,..there are others that are in better shape,….that no one lives in,…..and if no one starts to took care of them,..Then in a few years they will look just like this one,…
    Cheer` Al,…and thanks for the visit,…

    It is sad that a lot of abandoned homes just fall to the ground, when a little early intervention and love might have preserved their history! Great old home ~ wonderful treatment John!
