While exhibiting at a show in Cave Springs, Georgia, a couple talked to me about painting a picture of their home. We made an appointment with them to see the home and take some pictures. Their home was located north of Rome, Georgia outside of Armuchee, GA.
While being taken on a tour of the home, they brought out a photograph of what the home looked like before it was remodeled. It was black and white photo of the house back in the early 1900’s. Since I was interested in nostalgic places, I mentioned that I would like to paint a second picture of what it used to look like. The didn’t mind, but they were not interested in purchasing it when it was finished.
This is what the finished painting looked like before it was remodeled. The painting was sold almost immediately. Actually, it was still on my easel not quite done when someone told me they wanted to buy it when it was finished. You’ll notice the date on the painting , 1985 shows that it was painted 30 years ago.
