|original watercolor 24 x 36 SOLD|
I wanted to share with you the commissioned painting that I've been working on. I can happily say that the client received the painting and is thrilled with it. It was an honor to be asked to paint this piece. I graduated from Carterville High School so this was close to my heart. This year was the last class that will graduate from this building. No other students will walk down the un-air-conditioned hallowed halls. I will say after working with the super superintendent on this project that he was the perfect person to undertake building the new high school. The new school is beautiful and he really worked hard to keep the history of the old school alive. Some of the architectural details of the old high school have been preserved and put on display in the new school.
I'm very proud that my painting will be hung in the new school to remind everyone of Carterville's history.
