Description

Barn in a landscape. There is a large barn that takes up almost the entire composition. It has a pointed roof with a weathervane in the form of an arrow on top. It has an open door in the center and a smaller door on either side. It has vertical parallel lines suggestive of wooden planks. The horizon line is about three fourths down from the top.
