Historic Jolly Mill

Historic Jolly Mill, Missouri
Oil on panel, 16x12
The beautiful old Jolly Mill was first built on Capps Creek in Jollification, Missouri in 1848.  This view is actually of the back side of the mill, so as to capture the waterfall running along side.  This mill has been restored in recent years by the Friends of the Jolly Mill and is now surrounded by park land,  It is also a primary trout fishing location where the waters are periodically stocked with rainbow and brown trout.  Missouri is full of wonderful, historic places like this - and this one was brought to my attention by a friend, John Molloski.  This painting makes 587 in 587 days.
