Chestnut House I
Watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press 10 x 13; framed 20 1/2 x 24 1/2. Each morning I awoke to see the cat sitting on the rock wall surveying the land for prey and the cute little out building cast in warm shadows. The monks baked their bread in this house from the many chestnut trees on the property here in the Dordogne region of France. It has lasted for several centuries. Wet-into-wet technique.
