Grain elevators are disappearing all across the West, so finding one still standing tall is special. Finding a line of elevators is even more rare and precious. These elevators are located in a dot-on-the-map town on the prairies of eastern Montana. Learning about them was the first challenge. Getting there when the light was low was even harder. My husband and I spent the night in the nearest community, got up before dawn, and drove the dirt roads in the dark. But that allowed us to be there as the morning sun hit their northern faces. As the silvery light came across the flat landscape, it lit the strong vertical towers of thee three elevators — a scene that filled me with calm and peace All of my works are professionally matted and framed, using the highest quality glass. Please note that the dimension above are for the image only; the framed work is larger. You can contact me for a description and photo of the painting fully framed.
