Old Pump House

A few years ago as my DH and I were riding around some country roads near our home I spotted this old pump house.  It was listing quite badly and I thought I should record for a future painting.  These are disappearing quickly in our area and this one is gone now, knocked down by a severe winter storm.  Glad I stopped and shot it.

                                     11 x 14 Arches Paper #140  Transparent WC's

This was a fun painting to do.  Took me 10 hrs. of painting time, over 5 days.
I'm going to keep this one for a while and may make some prints of it for sale.

The Rope Swing

                                    Watercolor 9 x 12
This is a place where I love to go and sit.  It's in a Bay Forest boardering a lush meadow.  The smell of the bay is heddy and sometimes the wild turkeys pass through.
