“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear — not absence of fear.”
– Mark Twain
Another Carlton Landing Painting – The Winner’s House – 5.5″ x 8.5″ Watercolor
I have painted this house before. It’s right across the street from The Meeting House
at Carlton Landing. I tried to find this when Steve and Joann were
here, so that I could give it to them, but I couldn’t find it. I found
it this morning. Now I can give it to them. Yay! This is their
house, but not their paint choices… of course!

known by his pen name Mark Twain. He was born in 1835 in Missouri. He
worked at several jobs, including steamboat pilot and miner. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper,
and other successful novels. His writing captured a very American
vernacular and flavor, and helped create a distinctive American
literature. He died in 1910.
