McCoy Meetin' House


It sure was a windy day for painting the McCoy Meetin' House on the campus of Park University!  Loving how it perches on this steep hill, I first wanted to sketch this dramatic composition.  I used my artistic license to push the green of the grass, which is all but green with this year's drought. The red brick of the historic old building called for that color in the landscape.  One of our themes is "historic buildings" this year at Parkville Plein Air, so I explored this place in paint.  I also played with the idea of focusing on on that bell tower, but didn't get to it this time.  Parkville is full of hidden treasures, and I'm so glad I get to search them out!  Painting number 4363 in 4363 days.
