Maritime Museum Grounds

I am a little late posting today since my sister and I were on the road to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Georgia. We are at the midway point in Roanoke, VA. After the visit with them it will be on to Myrtle Beach for a watercolor workshop. I'll try to keep posting while I'm away.

This was done on the grounds of the Maritime Museum in West Sayville. I'm not really sure if the buildings are part of the museum property or the golf course that the property is attached to...it is sort of in the middle. The building on the left is for woodworking, but I'm not sure what is in the other two buildings. I parked next to this huge pile of snow on the connecting road and was afraid someone was going to come along and make me move. As it was a car did stop and check to see if I needed help, so I thought that was nice. There is also a greenhouse on the property but I haven't sketched that yet.


  1. It is just so gloriously rustic! Colors, composition...Fabulous! I'll bet this place looks amazing in the other seasons too. Hope you have an awesome trip, Joan!

  2. You leave us with plenty to look at. Have fun on your trip. This is a lovely scene.

  3. This is really beautiful, you are an expert painting snow! Have fun in Georgia!
