Summer 2013- Painted from life, about 40 minutes each. Near my childhood home in Missouri there's a little piece of land set aside for preservation of cabins and other dated architecture found around the county, the oldest of which is from 1825. Oftentimes they're moved there from areas slated for construction and the like. Now it's a living history museum, but it's on the, ah, no-actual-city-funds-sorry-it's-awful path. Empty, but kept very pretty by volunteers, and perfect for studies like this. I'm thankful for it.
I LOVE LIFE STUDIES, I want spring to rear its ridiculously colorful head RIGHT NOW so I can go outside proper. (aka: trying to work outside with watercolors in freezing temperatures is a dumb thing)
