Round Barn of Belton

Today, I'm painting a slice of Belton history from the railroad tracks - the Round Barn on Main Street! I remember seeing this barn as a child, sitting high in the rocket slide in the Belton Memorial Park.  Later, I watched my own children play here, and wonder at it's history. I think I've drawn this in ink years ago, before I recorded work daily - and who knows where that piece is!  The spring greens are popping - though the golden hour light is already washing the scene with gold.  I love that this barn still stands when another beautiful local one in Stilwell is not.  We're losing these beautiful barns with each passing year.  Painting number 3713 in 3713 days.
