The painting is a country store and game checking station in the rural Virginia Appalachian range during the autumn’s hunting season. The light is strong but somehow wan at the same time. A part of the spectrum is absent and it makes one think of coming snow or rain. The store stays a little busy with the regular customers being increased by hunters. All linger a bit in the warmth inside that’s created by a large kerosene stove.

A limited palette was used to accent a place that was both vital to a community’s life and a location where death was accounted. The holding of the two concepts provides a strange dignity to the otherwise drab and ordinary.

    Wonderful muted tones add an earthiness to this piece. It is very realistic.

    Thank you Cathy. I derive considerable enjoyment from your works much in the manner one enjoys a piece of literature or a fine meal. Some more of course than others; but I would guess your own consideration runs that way too. Let us agree that no pro quid is ever needed.
