The house across the street
On the one fine day we had this week, (I think it was Monday?) I did
this sketch. I had started it while waiting for a ride to our last sketch
outing (basically I was 5 min into the drawing). It is a sketch of the
house across the street. This carriage house and the main house
adjacent to it was built in 1910. It had belonged to a family who had
lived in it for over 35 years. They raised three sons and a daughter in
it and saw the grand kids of that family grow up. The carriage house
and the property it is on was subdivided and sold. Our new neighbors
renovated the carriage house and built a new modern house behind it. In
the last 4 years, the main house and the carriage house have each seen
two new owners.
