A Day that Starts and Ends with Tobacco Barn
After lunch I went to my grand daughter's theater camp performance. While I was sitting in the theater lobby waiting for my husband to turn up, I sketched the happy daddy holding a bouquet of flowers for each of his little girls.
And on the right: the door I bought at Tobacco Barn! It seems to be either a panel from an old folding screen or an old shutter or one of a pair of narrow doors. Whatever it is, someone did a very sweet painting of what is described on the tag as "An Italian Countryside Scene" on it. The moon is cut out of the wood, reminding me a bit of an old outhouse door, but I think it's too narrow for that, and the cut looks fairly recent anyway, so I'm guessing it's part of the countryside scene. It funks up the back porch perfectly, and Phil likes it fine, especially since he didn't have to carry it to the car or from the car to the house.
