Last weekend we visited Galena, IL. In nearby Council Hill we stopped at Council Hill Station and I took lots of pictures-no time allowed for sketching-and this painting is a result. As I often do I modified the scene considerably-night rather than afternoon-added pumpkins for a touch of color-and placed it on a hill-otherwise a fairly accurate portrayal of a fascinating structure.
P.S. I have to once again put in a plug for The Grandview Guest House in Galena. You must stay there!
