Fence Post - watercolor

watercolor, 2016
available, 7"x11"

      Just a quick, loose painting of something I saw every day growing up and still see once or twice a week. This fence post denotes the edge of my parents' back yard. The field beyond used to pasture a beautiful white horse when I was very young. Once the horse was gone, the fencing fell into disrepair and has looked like this for at least 40 years.

  5. There are fences like that near my parents' home, too. Though with all the new construction, I doubt they will be there long. I adore this painting--it fills my eyes to the brim.
