Farewell Little White House

After 8 1/2 years going to this little cabin in West Virginia we have given it up.  Now with the off-leash dog park here in town we don’t need to go to the cabin for the dogs to run off the leash.  It was a perfect relaxing little spot that I have loved. 

It was an amazing place to paint both inside and out around the farm.  I have many wonderful memories of days out painting with my dogs running around playing.  Today I will load the last of our things and bring them home.  Goodby Little White House.

I grew up in Southeast Georgia.  It’s really low and flat there and our falls never had colors like we see here in Virginia.  My mother loved the colors so we always traveled to the “mountains” in the fall to enjoy the season.  We usually went to the Great Smokey Mountains.  The colors there are a lot like here. 

Several years ago Allen and I took his 90-year-old aunt, Honnie,  over to West Virginia to visit her other nephew at his mountain house.  This is the view from their deck.  Honnie called this painting “Scattered Rugs” (oil on canvas, 18″x24″).  And she wrote a poem about it.  I’ve searched everywhere for where I put the poem and when I find it I’ll post it here for you all to see.

I passed this really neat looking barn on the way to Sassafras Farm a few weeks ago when I was in West Virginia.  I love the way it looks.  So we painted it last week in adult art class.  If you have ever thought about painting you should come join us on Wednesdays or Thursdays for class.  Click here for more information.

Even though I taught nine hours each day at the Retreat I did find a little time one morning to paint a little scene in Plein-air.  This lovely little scene was right behind my cabin.

Here is the progress I made in about an hour.

And here is the final painting, Camp Shepherd Morning, oil on canvas panel, 8″x10″, framed and available for $195.
