Sutphin Farm, Day 19, #30x30directwatercolor2019
This beautiful old farm is near Poulsbo, WA. I set up my easel at the side of the road and began to paint. A woman emerged from the farmhouse and came down the road with a bouquet of flowers. When I asked, she said they were for the neighbor who is having a birthday today. She was curious about the watercolor, so I showed her what I planned to do. Her husband grew up on this farm. The house is 100 years old, and the 15-acre farm used to have 3,000 chickens in two long sheds, as well as dairy and beef cattle. It's a Kitsap County treasure.
