After several years of passing by a small out building on a rural road just north of Pittsburgh, I noticed that the owner always had some sort of a wreath displayed upon the door. In the summer, possibly a wreath of vine, and in the winter maybe a holiday theme, but always something and always changing. I found myself looking forward to seeing what the next selection would bring.
In this painting, I tried to capture the charm of that old structure, but my first sketches seemed to be fruitless, they just didn't seem to say as much as I wanted, so, the painting was on hold. Clearing out my cellar, however, was the key to finishing the painting, for in doing so I came across the sled "Airline Chief" made by Flexible Flyer, circa the 50's which I promptly included in my sketch. Given the important role of my new participate, I titled the painting accordingly.
