Benson's - ACEO Landscape Cityscape Painting of Ice Cream Stand

2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches
acrylic on watercolor paper

One more scene from Boxford, Massachusetts for the local school auction. I will be doing more of these local scenes to sell at the town festival in the fall. It has been lots of fun to work on these familiar buildings and to learn a little more about their history.

Anyways, Benson's is a VERY popular ice cream place in West Boxford. They make all their own ice cream in small batches right on the premises and they use all the local ingredients that they can get. Amazingly good ice cream - especially the seasonal fruit flavors made with local fruit (think strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, peach) yum, yum.

Originally a farm stand, Benson's started serving ice cream in 1932 from a side porch. Now it is a local tradition, serving multiple generations from that same location. My kids look forward to opening weekend each year...and many of our family "occasions" are celebrated with a stop at Benson's.

Definitely worth a stop if you are ever anywhere near Boxford!
