Historic Beauty

7 x 7 Pastel on Wallis Paper, 16 x 16 Framed
$150 + s/h (Framed)


I love old buildings, and this structure dated back to the late 1800's.  It was part of a Shaker community building that I believe was used as a central meeting place.  I chose to paint this view because the flowering bush in front of the window really set it off, but I might paint it again from the inside looking out through the leaded glass.  It always amazes me to see how the glass distorts the view and gives objects a surreal quality.
