Abandoned Farm Series

Abandoned Farm Series” paintings explores the ideas of loneliness, secrecy and compassion. The abandoned house, now sad and lonely, resonates with a long history of life to share. Curiosity forces Conklin to wonder who lived there, what kind of lives they led and why this home has been abandoned. The house appears vulnerable, yearning for human protection. The house contains secrets, loss, sadness, joy, and other emotions that bind people together, strangers and families alike. Just like the body is the vessel for the soul, the house is a vessel for the lives within.
