Cottage, Nimrod Hall, Virginia

8x8, oil on canvas panel, 85.00, Daily Paintworks

This is one of the cottages that houses workshop participants at Nimrod Hall in Virginia.  The first building was build in the 1700's,  but others like this one were added later.  They all have porches--which is splendid since there is no air conditioning.  The rooms are sparse, but comfortable.  It's good to get away from our decorated, air conditioned, automated houses for a change.  These rooms with the boards instead of sheetrock reminded me of my grandparents' homes.

Oh, and the cottage is not pink--just the roof which is a pinkish red tin-I used artist's license on this one.  Just seemed more attractive in the painting to me.
