Historic Buildings in Pennsylvania, Inn at Yellow Springs

SOLD Inn at Yellow Springs, (the Washington Building), 18x24, oil on linen

I worked on this a bit more today, and I'm pretty satisfied with it now. I still haven't decided whether or not to take the long drive up to Chester Springs next week, for the jurying of the Annual Yellow Springs art show, which is in May of 2008. But if I decide to do it, this is one of the paintings that I'll take with me, though it certainly is not a good example of my best work. Since they would have to retire regular artists in order to accept new ones, I think my chances of getting into the show are pretty remote. Also, since the hubby and I put about 6000 miles on our car this summer road-tripping, I'm definitely not in the mood for another road trip. Sigh. I do need to make up my mind in the next day or two, but for now, I'm just happy I finished this sucker.

Inn at Yellow Springs, Washington Bldg.

Inn at Yellow Springs/ Washington Building, 18x24, oil on linen I decided to paint this building, even though I suck at painting buildings. (Note: finished product is better than photo! Click on the picture for more detail.)

Please let me know what you think of the final product. I painted it from the photo below, which is a picture of the Washington Building in historic Yellow Springs, Pa. where I lived before moving to Florida.
