8" x 10" Scratchboard
$250 (includes shipping and handling)
This is from a picture I took in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri several years ago. Ste Genevieve is a very old town on the Mississippi river founded by Frenchmen that had traveled down the river from Canada. It happens to be the home of some of my French ancestors. One of them was Nicolas Janis and was the reason my parents named me Janis. There are many old French style homes in this village including the Nicolas Janis home built around 1790.This house is a newer home ( probably 1940's?) I saw it as we drove into the town. I love the way the light is shining on the front door and was a great inspiration for a black and white scratchboard.
