Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore…
This is a watercolor based on a sketch I made of an early Mount Vernon, the great estate of General and Mrs. Washington on the hilly green banks of the wide Potomac. But in contrast to the black and white starkness of the drawing, I chose to color the painting with a gentle palette, something a bit more Martha than George. After all, who do you think really ran the house?!
