Old Plantation

12" x 16" Watercolor
My friend and nail tech, Karen, asked me if I would paint this for her. It's an old plantation in Southern Georgia that she and her fiance pass by on their way to the hunting cabin. It's fallen into bad shape over the years, and the owner lives in a trailer next door. When people stop their cars to take pictures, she comes out with her shotgun and sends them on their way! Anyway, it was fun to paint, even though I don't like the way I paint buildings. I gave it to her this morning as a wedding present. And, she loved it!
