The Pretty Town of Winchester

I went to visit Dinah in Winchester, a really pretty place, with the houses straight out of Dennis the Menace or Archie's Riverdale: made of wood, set in open yards, kiddie toys and Halloween corn dollies left outside. Fall must have been spectacular, because the town is bordered by woods. The occasional little red-clothed tree, like this one, was beautiful enough for me, though I do wish I could have made it to Winchester in the Fall.

The day after Thanksgiving was a day misted by rain. Dinah and I walked through the town, just catching up on things. Also, taking photographs to paint from. This painting has come out better than it appears here... looks like my scanner is once again settling in for a long sulk.
