The Dust Bowl ravaged homesteads of the Great Plains like no other disaster. As topsoil blew away, dust falling as far east as Chicago, family after family abandoned their dreams and moved away. I've seen these homes with children's books still stacked on shelves, pots and pans scattered along counters, and other evidence that when the time came to leave much was left behind.
Each year fewer of these homes remain, lost to the harsh, prairie weather and an increasing demand for repurposed wood. This particular house caved in during heavy snows in 2017, another ghost ship of the Plains lost to time.
This is a striking image shot in nearly black and white, and at 33x50 commands attention for any angle. It is printed on the fine aluminum for unmatched detail, durability, and compatibility with many interior design styles. The edition size for this art is 5 prints.
