Artist's Description

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.
