Retirement in the Country

April 19, 2011
Retirement in the Country, 8×10, Gouache
 
Not far from where I live, there’s a strange collection of buildings.  Mostly hidden from the surrounding streets, it has the look of an abandoned compound, with a large house and a couple of two story, old rooming house style buildings clustered around what is now a dirt courtyard of sorts.  My discovery of this place, and subsequent visit with a camera is a story to be told another time.  It involves three young boys, an old guy with a camera, and a hidden path through the weeds over a hill.  Sitting on the property is also this old caboose, surrounded by weeds.  My laptop, which I normally use to paint from, is being worked on, so I pulled up a photo of the old caboose on the desktop and printed it out.  This was a fun little painting to do.
