The City of High Point - watercolor

watercolor, 2015
11"x15" $125

      I was getting some shots of the train depot in Salisbury NC a few years ago when I got lucky and a train actually pulled in. Well, imagine my surprise when the train in question was named "The City of High Point," my hometown. This is one of those pieces that seems to be growing on me. I was "happy" with it when I finished it, meaning it had some good point and some bad points. But the more I look at it, the more I like, the more I think it shows me heading in the right impressionistic direction.

  3. That is a beautiful painting - and I have trouble believing that people do such terrific work with water colors - my attempts have been pretty pitiful!
