Cordage Park 5x7




I got this little sketch done while waiting for the security patrol to come and let me out after I trespassed (Yes, I KNOW) out in back of the old cordage buildings, taking pictures. While I was there photographing blissfully, ever the artistic explorer, someone locked the gate, Oh Crap :(
Luckily, and I do mean luckily, there is a new Marina down there where it used to be pretty much desolate. I got the attention of one of the workers and he called the Security guy to come and spring me. While I was waiting I thought I should paint. I'll finish this up and post the final. I was a little embarrassed in a 'curiosity killed the cat' kind of way. These beautiful old mill buildings are right on the water where they used to ship the rope from. Good thing I got my fill of pictures 'cause I can't go back!

What a fun story Mary! People don't realize the things we go through to get a painting! It can be an adventure. Your color is great, especially those greens against those lovely shades of red.
Glad you made it out of there! ~Heidi

How funny, Mary!!
The things we gotta do to get the painting!
This one was worth it, though.

LOL Lulabelle!
The Spite tree!! So Funny.
This is just so 'me'. I even told Don although I swore I wasn't going to!
He had no trouble believing that I would just drive right past the No Trespassing signs, entranced by the idea of the painting!
I have been so in love with these buildings, forever. Supposedly they'll someday be turned into waterfront condos and I want to live here!
