Brick Buildings in Nashville (oil 8/10 panel) *SOLD*


Started the sketch outside and I finished it from memory the next day. It's behind the Lifeway building off 9th I think. I can't remember those road numbers. One of these buildings was an old piano store. I think they are abandoned or hobos stay in them.

I always see this old abandoned bank on my way to McMinnville TN. Built in 1919 No money is left in there, I checked. I wish someone would fix it up, it would make a nice shop.

Radnor Lake Sketches and Farm



Here are some sketches for my Radnor Lake park paintings. The Chestnut Group is have an exhibit of it's members work to benefit the park. A whole gang of Chestnutters was out last Thursday night painting the full moon over the lake. Brave souls. I was there making pencil and marker sketches in my sketchbook. I saw lots of fine works of the moonlit lake. These were done late afternoon. I will scan my night sketches next. The farm is on Nolensville Road and Kidd Road a mile or so before you get to Nolensville TN. Attn. Locals, go paint or draw it. Small working dairy farms are vanishing fast around here.
