I grew up on a farm in Northern Ohio and last weekend we went back for a visit. My Grandfather worked in this lime plant. The plant has such a strong and distinct smell it brought back many wonderful memories. The purpose of the trip was to visit my Aunt Justine to see her show of painting at the Elmore Library. I will post Justines painting in the near future. Those who have been following my blog will remember she started painting again at the age of 85 after visiting one of my shows in 2006. She gave me painting lessons as a child in Woodville. Her work is truly amazing.
This is one of her Doorway paintings.
