Farm Road, Abbey of Gethsemani (October 2011)

Last weekend my buddy Mark Garvey and I visited the Abbey of Gethsemani, about 10 miles outside Bardstown, Kentucky.  Gethsemani is a Trappist monastery best known for its most famous Monk, Thomas Merton.  The Abbey owns over 2000 acres of land and visitors are given the run of most of it.  The only rule is silence.  (Although when you’re a mile from the monastery there’s no telling what you might say.)  This painting depicts one of the farm roads on the Gethsemani property.  The barn is a figment of the painter’s imagination.
