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.


  1. How wonderful, to be able to paint what you've seen!

  2. Mithila - I didn't realize you had a blog!!! I just read through all your posts back to the beginning. It was almost like being with you again. I love seeing your paintings and sketches of NYC and the portraits you did. Mine looks pretty much like me. Now I will put your blog under my "links" so I can visit you all the time.

  3. the travelogue through art is fantastic...
    i loved the colors and compositions....

  4. awesome...Myth. loved the faces; wish i knew the people. Your talent certainly seems to have matured beautifully...Liz.
