Years ago one of my favorite things to paint was black and white photos. I loved the old post cards and portraits from the turn of the century that were hand painted. They had such a wonderful hazy glow to them. They always looked liked they were someones dream of how a place should look. I still have a few of the ones I did. This one is in Rockport, MA. These cottages overlook the ocean and as we used to say, "Next stop England".
