Description

Two buildings in a landscape. There is a barn to the right with horizontal parallel lines indicating boards or wooden planks on the front and side. There are vertical parallel lines on the back end. The building behind it also has parallel lines and half circles on the roof. There are squiggly lines in the foreground, covering roughly the bottom third of the image. There are wavy lines in the background, perhaps suggesting clouds.
