Grain elevators are the skyscrapers of open space in the West.   Beautiful in their geometric symplicity, they also symbolize the point at which the wealth of grain from the prairies is transferred to the railroad, to make its way to the world.   Many of these iconic elevators disappear every year.    I paint them to capture and appreciate them before they are gone.
