acrylic on watercolor paper
This little painting is of the church (Congregational, I believe) that stands on the town common in Topsfield, Massachusetts. It sold Saturday at the Strawberry Festival.
Besides the fact that I enjoy doing these little local scenes because I enjoy the old buildings and the architecture, I also really enjoy people's reactions to them. I get to hear so many personal stories of these places when I am at shows, or even when I stop by one of the local places where I have work on display. This weekend I got to hear quite a bit of town history, and also people's personal history about these places - it was really interesting - and a lot of fun!
I have one more of these paintings that I finished for the show on Saturday - and then I hope to start posting some of the commissions I am currently working on......
