Watercolor and Gouache
Allen Benson, the owner of the house depicted here, made his way down that winding driveway to talk to me just as I was finishing the painting. Sharing his knowledge, he said that white building is the oldest in their little town, built in 1936, and before lightning took the top of the the white pine on the right, they had a certificate from the state of mn saying it was the tallest in Beltrami county. He said I should title it 1936 house. Thank you sir, you just made this experience that much better!
