BRITT FARM


11 x 16 inches, watercolor, 1989
original - not available
giclée print $100

This is my childhood home near Mount Olive, NC, as it looked in 1977.  It was my earliest serious attempt at a transparent watercolor.  The scene looks different now - the road has been paved, the barn has been replaced, and the neighbors are closer together.
