I have loved this building for years: one door, one window,
careful construction with beautiful architectural details.
I finally stopped one day last year and asked the owner
what purpose this iconic building had, and learned that
it was originally a corn crib (which is why the building is
slightly built up from the ground: to allow for air circulation.)

I painted this scene on an early morning summer morning.
I think of this painting as the second in my Simple Gifts series.
I may paint more — I think I have more to learn about present
time from this simple building.
