This Ole House

This is a recent commission of an old homeplace that had been neglected.  While making the decision  to tear it down, the owners were able to salvage materials to be reused in a new home that was built nearby on the property.

I was given license to imagine what the home may have looked like when a family lived there. It made me think of an old country song entitled "This Ole House" recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford.

My client sent me a sweet note and the above photo to let me see my painting in place.  I am grateful for the opportunity they gave me to work with them and honor the past!
