"Victorian Manor"

Today's painting, oil on gesso'd masonite, 6 X 9-1/2.
Concept painting.

The idea was to come up with a large estate sized mansion and property that time had forgotten, possibly in one of the southern states near the ocean. A weathered old vacant house that if you walked around inside you'd see worn stairs and hand railngs that showed the character and charm of generations of families and children that had lived there. I went scouting around the city and found a place with interesting architecture to base this painting on. The rest is based on an estate in Savannah Georgia and from imagination.
