The painting is beautifully framed and matted. It shows the historic buildings that line the south side of High Street, the main thoroughfare through our town.
This panoramic view of High Street was painted especially for the Summer Open House. I wanted it to have a happy, summery feel, so I used a bit of artistic license with the colors, turning the dark rust-colored brick of the police station into a bright salmon color...
and the dark red of the adjacent building into a pretty pink!
The bright colors of spring worked their way into my painting.
The courthouse stands proud and tall in the center of town, with General Nathaniel Greene on top of the dome, perpetually doffing his tri-corner hat.
The Job Services office on the next corner looks kind of perky with its striped awnings.
The Veterans' Affairs Department's windows are decorated with red, white, and blue.
Since the yellow building to the right of Veterans' Affairs is currently empty, with a FOR LEASE sign in the window, I re-imagined it as a cute little restaurant.
At the end of the block is InMotion Dance Studio, with posters of dancers decorating every window.
Put them all together and you have one cute little All-American town. Our town... Waynesburg, PA.
