Sherfy House wins Best of Show


I am so happy to share that my painting of Sherfy House on the Gettysburg Battlefield won Best of Show at the Susquehanna Art Society exhibit in Sunbury. 

I painted this entirely on location during the Gettysburg Festival Plein Air Event. 
At the time of the Civil War, the Sherfy House, on Emmitsburg Road,  was the residence of Joseph Sherfy and his family who were the owners of the Peach Orchard across the street, and the location of the famous battle which turned the war for the Union troops.
