Two Islands Farm

This abandoned farm is a typical sight around the Parrsboro area. At one time, this entire region was a bustling ship building and fishing site. Many famous vessels got their start here and coal was brought from Springhill and exported by ship and rail. At one time the only road to Truro and the lower peninsula was through Parrsboro but this has been replaced by the Trans Canada Highway which bypasses it. It's a great place to paint and really get away.

Wow, what a beauty. Such a great feel to it. I agree with Wanda the trees are well done. The shadows are great on the building especially the reflected greens in the eaves. Cheers! ~Heidi

Oooh, yeah, I hadn't noticed the reflected greens until I read the other comments. Nicely done.
