Creating a painting of bygone times, is a treasure that will bring back memories for some and will be cherished for years to come. It is possible to create a beautiful and colorful painting from a black and white photo, it may be challenging but in the end, it is definitely worth it.

Log Cabin in Watercolor
This is a painting which I painted from a black and white photograph of an old camp in the Adirondacks on a beautiful lake. The photo was taken in the late 1940s, I painted the painting in late 2007. Today, a new cabin stands in its place, sadly the old camp was struck by lightning in the early 1980s. I was able to recreate the colors from details given to me by family members. Today, this painting now hangs inside the new cabin. This is a full sheet watercolor painting, 22x30".
