Stone Mountain Grist Mill (Summer)

Stone Mountain, Georgia

As an artist, I am always looking at things differently than most.  I have painted several nostalgic businesses around the country, many of them commissioned. This painting is one of my favorites, as it was one of my first attempts at Acrylic painting, after previously working in oil paints.

I hadn’t yet refined my detail, but it convinced me to continue painting in acrylics. I never sold this 24″x30″ canvas painting, as it hangs in my son’s living room, framed in barn wood. This was also the largest painting I had done up until then, which was in 1976.

The old mill is located within the Stone Mountain Park, east of Atlanta, Georgia.  Home of the Yellow Daisy Festival, one of the top Arts & Crafts Festivals in the country.  It was one of my favorite shows where I exhibited for several years. 

Grist Mills have always had a special interest to me, they are fascinating, and brilliant planning for the water to do the hard work!  Here are some grist mills around the Country that I have painted,
