  • Size: 10.5″ x 17″  Framed: 17.5" x 24" Modern Larson Juhl coffee-colored frame. Archival mat, regular glass. Barn and Chickens, dated October 25, 1982, is from a series of not fewer than 4 paintings based on photos Masters shot in St. Charles, Missouri in October of 1981. Identified as Mr. Berg’s barn, in each of these paintings, we see a weathered barn with large black openings and a rusted corrugated roof situated in a dry, spare landscape reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth. In this version, Masters loosens his brushstroke, allowing the watercolor to flow more freely across the paper. The two chickens relieve the austerity and negate the otherwise foreboding dark interior. Giclee prints from $30 available at Fine Art America HERE.

  • Size: 10.5″ x 17″  Unframed. Grover, Missouri was just one of the countless small towns dotted along Route 66 that no longer exists. Grover Texaco recalls the days when full-service filling stations were manned by courteous uniformed attendants who pumped your gas, cleaned your windshield and checked your oil. Now deserted, we stand at the entrance to the driveway where we mentally replace the Texaco sign atop its pole that had once been flanked by pumps. Rendered in harmonious shades of red, violet, green, and yellow, the site is unexpectedly clean and tidy, free of broken windows, graffiti and debris. Under the setting sun the Grover Texaco Station stands as a memorial to a bygone era. Masters said of his art, “I am striving to provide you with a pleasurable escape, perhaps remind you of something forgotten and most certainly, convey a sense of beauty.” Mission accomplished.
