|2012-02-02 Postmaster's House 9x12"|
Saturday, February 2, 2013
I found this old house on the side of Williamson Road, around Buda. Several groups of people (their family owns the land) stopped by to see what I was doing. From them, I learned that up until a month ago the entire field was covered with mesquite trees, and you couldn't even tell that a house was back there. I also learned that at one time, this was the home of the Creedmore, TX Postmaster. One young guy who stopped told me that he wouldn't have believed that a old broken down building like that could make a nice painting.I told him that I think these buildings are the best things to paint. I've said it before in another blog post, I'm drawn to the old rusty metal roofs and weathered wood.
