This weekend I participated in a first-time Plein Air event in Bristol, RI called Paint Bristol. Bristol is a very picturesque town, which is very walkable, with lots of cafes and restaurants, galleries and very cool shops. I painted this in the morning, a cute little gingerbread Victorian right on Hope Street, which is the main drag. The owner stopped by and was telling me the story of the house, and the close-set house next door to it. Apparently a single lady lived here, with a nice big lot. She had a friend who fell upon hard times, and she offered the yard to her friend. Seeing as her friend was totally without means, she bought a house and had it ROLLED through the streets of Bristol, where it was set up on her land. The two lived amicably side by side into their 90's. I told the owner it seemed to me always that the spirit of this house was a happy one, and he confided that he actually thought there was a ghost, albeit a friendly one, in the house. He said he often smelled cooking cinnamon and baked goods, when there is no good reason for it.
I offered this today for $325, framed in a gold plein air frame. I will honor this price for this week, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.Pin It
