All Is Well With A Candle In The Window
President James Buchanan's Home in Lancaster PA
by Mary Beth Brath
Finally - finished. I enjoyed an awesome day of plein air painting with members of the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters recently. I had most of the painting finished on site but I needed to adjust some angles, put a candle in the window and simplify colors.
I was intrigued by this quiet rear entrance covered with a very healthy grape vine. There was no candle in the window - that was my doing. The "grape vine" of gossip surrounding Buchanan's presidency is also quite healthy. My candle symbolizes peace and assurance that all is well.
