Greenock Steeple, oil, 6x6, $50
Today's painting is a view from our home. As you know, I see 6 steeples looking out my balcony, I picked the Greenock Church today, a landmark building of St. Andrews, NB, painted from the parking spots.
Here's a bit more history: The Presbyterians of St. Andrews organized for worship in 1822 as a congregation of the Church of Scotland. The church building, finished in June 1824, was the gift of Capt. Christopher Scott; a patriotic native of the town of Greenock, Scotland. Finished with the finest materials, mahogany, maple (including bird's eye maple), the building is an architectural showpiece and National Historic Site.
Below is my little artist Maximilian, trying watercolours painting the german garden gnom.
Unser Maximilian versucht sich beim Aquarellmalen (Motiv: deutscher Gartenzwerg), er macht das schon richtig gut.
