Very thankful for the collector of this print from Charlottesville, VA! I wandered around on a hot spring day, capturing many opinions of what this barn meant to the surrounding landscape. The shadows pointing to the strong design of the barn pulled me in. 5 X 7" oil on archival linen board.
Some history for the buffs: Bleak House was a 692‑acre plantation nine miles northwest of Charlottesville. Dr. James B. Rogers (1793‑1863) purchased it from the heirs of William Michie in 1836 and built the house, which still stands, about 1854. The plantation bordered the South Fork of the Rivanna River about five miles upstream from the Hydraulic Mills. Wheat, tobacco, corn, and livestock were raised there and activities included blacksmithing and textile production.
