Where Mary Washington went to the Bathroom

We get a little jaded in these parts...Virginia is brimming with history.  And today, at George Washington's mother's house, I painted her fancy pants outhouse.  It is really a facsimile and is used as a tool shed in her garden.  The red bud was in bloom and the light was clear.  Optimal plein air weather.  It is very inspirational to live near so many historical sites.

On a painting note, I held myself to two hours, no more, no less.  I knew I would, so I got as much done as I could, and focused on color and thick paint application.  I use water based oil paints by Daniel Smith and I love them.
