ANOTHER ABERDEEN, MISSISSIPPI MYSTERY"


This is the No. 157 painting in my 365/2010 series.
Title: ANOTHER ABERDEEN, MISSISSIPPI MYSTERY"
Size *X11
Medium: Watercolor on 140lb. DeArches cold press paper.
Both Miss. Peacock thought his had to be the back of the house.
I have been in the backyard of every large house in Aberdeen and this house is simply not there.
The photo that I had to work from is a family portrait. There were three adults in the picture One older gentleman that looked like maybe the grandfather and husband of one the elderly woman. There was a younger, middle aged lady and 4 children. There was what looked like an early teen (12-14), and a little girl maybe 7-8 and a little boy or girl looked like a boy to me but in that girly clothes boys use to dress up in to have their picture made. There was also a 8-10 year old black girl (Family) That did happen you know.
Also it looks to me like the middle age lady is playing a violin. There is a table with some things on it and it is beside a very large chair obviously brought outside and a Tiffany type floor lamp. beside the chair. I'm sure those things were brought outside not for comfort but to show off their affluence.
If you have a photo like this or know anything about the house or people. Talk to me, Please.
I do hope you like what I do.Sorry for being so late in this post today.
