He said, “Next: Corwith Barns… The barns are no longer there, but I’ve photographed them many times, and I’m doing a great painting that hopefully captures every broken board in that fading structure.”
Stern later expressed that he was viewing the project as a way to reconnect with his late father.
“I’m not sure how old those barns were, but I feel like painting the barns is honoring him and everyone who gets old and then goes away,” he said.
