Farm Cabin - December 4, 2009

"Never give out while there is hope; but hope not beyond reason, for that shows more desire than judgment."

William Penn

Farm Cabin

9" x 12" Golden Fluid Acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord

This is the painting I worked on, the second day of my workshop with Don Tiller, in Port Townsend, WA last month. I had the best time in his workshop! I'm going to try to go larger with my next one. **grin**

About William Penn

William Penn is remembered as the founder of Pennsylvania; the democratic government he set up became the model for the United States Constitution. He was born in 1644 in England. After he was arrested several times for preaching Quaker ideals, he decided to found a settlement in America. He drew up the "Great Treaty" with the Delaware Indians to ensure they were paid fairly for their land and toured Europe marketing the new colony. He died in 1718

Thanks Lindy! I love small cabins, too. Something cozy and historic about them.
