Magnificent painting, Doug! Such amazing light and detail! Perhaps those beautiful forget-me-nots will entice new owners for this wonderful old fixer-upper! L/F/T

Oh Doug, what a fabulous painting! I love the selective coloring in this piece, the subtle blues in the flowers and broken shutter. Rustic wood is a favorite of mine. I love the way the trees frame the image, the broken swing, everything creating a “forget-me-not” feel to your artwork. I love your story behind the artwork, although saddened by its finish by fire. Thank you for sharing your talent with this marvelous piece. LF Janet 💕

Doug Kreuger replied:

Janet, Thank you ever so much for your warm kind-hearted comments, they are truly appreciated!

A most touching photo and description. I is always sad when a once vibrant place falls into a joyless, woeful state. I can hear the echo of the children laughing as they happily played on the swing. I wonder what became of all the lives and dreams of the people who once lived there? Why did it fall into disrepair...

Doug Kreuger replied:

Hartmut, Thank you for your warm and endearing comment. My relatives who lived in this once-vibrant home passed away a long time ago. As with so many other small farm towns, the railroad's main line and depot were built in nearby Aberdeen (instead of Wetonka).

This image truly resonates...stories of the lives that once inhabited this now abandoned structure. I also love the juxtaposition of yesterday's abandonment with the fresh blooms of tomorrow. L/F

Doug Kreuger replied:

Dr. Pat, Thank you for your thoughtful insight, I appreciate your kind support.
