While traveling around the country, I was always on the lookout for places and things of nostalgia. One Sunday afternoon, while driving down a 2 lane road in east-central Georgia, we passed through a community which may have been too small to call a town, but they had a building, with a row of stores on the north side of the road. One was an antique shop, so we stopped, camera in hand. It was obvious they were closed, because there were no cars in sight and no people. As I peered in the windows, I saw several old things that would interest me. One was an old carousel horse and another, an upright old piano covered with dust.
I took pictures of both items, but since they were closed, I shot them through the window, hence the painting is called “Piano through a Window”.
