Cedar Creek Grist Mill
Painting - Oil On Canvas Board
When looking for a reference photo to use for my first original oil painting during an art class, I came across a beautiful, high contrast photo of this grist mill in Washington State that was taken by my step dad, Ron Simmons on his facebook page. He and my mom ride Harleys, and take road trips many times each year and he captures some of the most amazing shots along the way. When I was younger, I got a degree in Drafting, and loved the architecture so this seemed like a perfect picture to start with although my instructor was hesitant because of the complexity and detail that it would have required. It took longer than expected, but I am very happy with how it turned out especially as my first original. I hope you love it as much as I do! In September, I will be in the Washington/Oregon area visiting my parents and they want me to go out to the mill with them and deliver a signed, framed and matted print to them to hang in the mill. I'm really looking forward to it!
