"Old Log House, Pine Mountain" $150 SOLD
8 x 10 acrylic on panel
I really love this painting! I loved doing it! It evokes wonderful memories of growing up in Harlan County, Ky. and the many trips we made over Pine Mountain to Pine Mountain Settlement School. My parents met when they were students at Pine Mountain Settlement School and they loved the school and told many, many stories about the things they did there, what they learned, everything from sleeping in winter on unheated sleeping porches, to peeling potatoes in the kitchen! It was a boarding school for mountain children and a very fine one. This cabin, called Old Log House was at the entrance to the school and was built there by a Metcalf man possibly around 1850. I always loved visiting it and visiting the school to see where my parents went. I found a photo my mother had, and painted this from it. What could be more beautiful than a rustic cabin set in among the Fall trees?
