"Crossroads N Ranch"

This is a very large ranch that we pass by every time we take a shortcut to one of the major interstate highways in Texas. For years I wondered why it was called "Crossroads Ranch." As we passed by on one of our trips into Oklahoma, I looked back & saw the "crosses" on the top of the silos & a cross with the letter "n" beside it. This is such a lovely area. I determined for several years that I was going to paint them. Just so happens that the tenants were there the day I chose to set my easel up & paint-such willing models! The paper was slightly wrinkled when I took this picture..the framing took out those uneven areas.
