New Melle Forbears
Cemeteries aren't typically on my list of landscape painting locations, but the afternoon sun on the stones and trees made me hit the brakes and go back for another look. A friend came by and stayed while I finished, and offered a beer to celebrate. He had earlier walked among the markers, and noticed that some dated back nearly 200 years. Thankfully, I chose to stop and record a significant piece of local history.
