John A. Medley Historic House    
Dimensions: 9 W x 12 H



I visited Owensboro for the Bronze Buffalo Paint Out with the Owensboro Art Museum.  When I saw the old fashioned swing on the large tree in front of the John A. Medley house, it caught my eye.  I got out my supplies from the back of the car and sat up to do this painting.  It was a very hot afternoon.  This is watercolor and ink.  The house was built in 1848 and was used as a hospital during the Civil War.  The swing makes me think of happier times!
