The Farm Collection: Moonlight by Susan A Ray of OneHealingStone Studio

$58.00

The new LIMITED EDITION Farm Collection!

Moonlight by Susan A Ray of OneHealingStone Studio Copyright 2018.

I did this collection because the barns I walk passed each day on our farm are almost invisible unless you are willing to look very closely.

Generally seen as crumbling buildings of a past generation, yet revealing reminders of the dedication of our fathers and grandfathers and the hard work it took to industrialize this country.

Over the years these barns served so many: farmers, their families, their communities. They sheltered animals that grazed on this land and stored hay and other crops, held machinery and made tools handy. They are monuments to getting up every morning with more work then a 12 hour day can get done and doing it again day after day after day with hardly any let up, yet today they are virtually disappearing from our Iowa landscape and our history.

Every nick against a barn door, every nail bent out of place, every ounce of worn paint and hand forged yet rusted hinge, is a tribute to the men and women who put food on America’s table and never ask for more than a smile and fair paycheck for their hard labor.

I hope they beckon you to look further into your own surroundings and realize what it took to get you to the present day.
It might truly surprise and delight you, too.
