This is the No. 114 painting in my 365/2010 series
Title: "ABERDEEN, MISSISSIPPI UNIDENTIFIED HOUSE"
Size: 8X10 inches
Medium: Watercolor on 140lb.DeArches cold press paper.
This is another painting done from the photos Miss. Peacock gave me back in the 1980's.
Large ionic columns on what seems to be brick or stone bases are at the front of the house and smaller ionic columns with their bases on what seems to be smaller slabs of concrete floors surrounding the entire sides and perhaps the back of the house. There is a large porch that surrounds the house with a balcony for the entire 2ND floor on the front and both sides of the house. AS elaborate banisters rail goes completely around the house and at the top of the front entrance. It looks like a captains walk is on top of the house, which means it could be near the river. Notice the large decorative exposed beams under the very large overhanging eves. I took away a lot of stuff from around the house that looked like doors, windows, shutters and lumber. There were several ladders leaning around the house. I believe this house was being dismantled when the photo was taken. Miss Peacock had written on the back of the photo that it was probably being constructed or demolished. I don't think cameras were available when this house was built.
If anyone out there has any photos of a building similar to this or of this house I would really like to see them.
I do hope you like what I do and thanks for looking.
