Coleridge House - watercolor

watercolor, 2014
original available, 11"x15" $200

      This beautiful old house is on NC 42 just across from what is essentially a ghost town. Literally, if you were standing in this spot and turned around, you would see the brick shells of buildings that haven't been occupied in many years and just around this curve is the shell of the abandoned textile mill that was the backbone of this town.. Coleridge used to be a thriving little mill town with a small textile mill, its own bank and a few other businesses. All that's gone now. But a few people still live in the area and either farm or drive to large towns nearby to work.


  1. Beautiful painting! I love that you told about its location and surroundings.

  2. Great watercolour, love the story behind it,

  3. Lovely work and thanks for the wonderful explanation.

  4. Stunning painting. I like the fact that you've captured it so well after reading about the demise of the area.
    Such a shame
    Enjoy PPF and your weekend
