Day 25  Lincoln's Rest
Mixed Media

     This is that same old modest farm house where Abraham Lincoln came to rest after speaking in Leavenworth, Kansas.  This home was built in 1854. Lincoln's cousin who married Judge Mark Delaney invited Lincoln to come for a visit after his work was finished to rest.  I did this 7 X 7 watercolor with pastel to capture the moodiness of the weather and drama of the history.  
     Another time, I hope to paint this magnificent Silver Maple by the edge of the road  The Champion Tree 
expert came to the house, took all the necessary measurements to conclude that although the trunk of the tree was nineteen feet around it was beat by another yet larger of it's type.  
     I never grow tired of speaking about that old wonderful farm house.
