Hi Anne - Elizabeth, like your mill painting very much. Great job. Is the mill at the Shenandoah Parkway? Christiane

I spent countless hours and days at this spot and all around the wonderful mountains. I grew up close enough to drive up at any time to enjoy the peace of the Blue Ridge Drive which my father helped build with the CCC. Did you know that those mountains were mostly bare and farmland when the parkway was conceived?

Gorgeous work Anne! Your father was indeed a master!

Hi, Anne-elizabeth, I really like your new piece of work, I love how you've captured the rustic texture of the mill, beautifully done!

Anne, this is a wonderful painting by your father. I love the Blue Ridge Parkway and this one my beloved stops along the way. I always include it as a part of my trip to the Biltmore Estates. Sincerely, Sean Cupp.

Dear Anne-Elizabeth What a beautiful picture..sooo peaceful and serene.. Just a lovely tribute to your father Anne.. Kudos my friend. Wayne

What a lovely tribute, sis, your dad sounds like he was a nice and interesting person.

Thank you Bruce and all. BRUCE, the complete painting is on the top of this page. The mill is still operating and there is a scenic area around there to walk and view other old-fashioned and beautiful sights. There is a wonderful restaurant on the property which serves pancakes made from wheat from the very same milll. Of course they serve a variety of choices from their menu there as well. There used to be *maybe still is, a blacksmith shop with the blacksmith working. We would stop and chat with him. He had many good stories to tell. They called him "Festus". I don't know what his real name was. There was a place on the location where they had a mule pulling a big board around and around. They were making sorghum (sp.) molasses outside in a big container. The mule was doing the "stirring." I have been there with my Mom & Dad, brother and others many times. There is a gift shop too. Many thanks. Anne

Dear Anne-Elizabeth, again. After watching the painting some more, I wanted to ask if the mill is still there. Thank you for telling us where it was, and could we see the whole painting of which this is a detail? Peace, etc., Bruce

Dear Anne-Elizabeth, Thanks a heap of pre-2000 dollars for showing this to us and saving if for posterity! It is gorgeous and deliteful for me. The subject, the water reflection, the overall mood. What a wonderful piece for most any room in a home. I have appreciated the paintings of your fathers that you have posted for us before, but I think that this is my favorite. No wonder that you have such talent in many ways -- did you play piano for him? Peace, etc. as always, Bruce

Beautiful oil painting Anne ... love it! My best, Juergen

your style of painting for this relic scenery is flawless

Wonderful colour, brushwork and perspective.
