This is where I work, the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts. The house was built in 1834 by John Latshaw, for Alexander Hamilton. Constructed of local sandstone, it sits on a 13 acre estate, overlooking the Niagara River, at the base of the escarpent in Queenston Ontario. This (the west) side of the house was originally the back. It became the front entrance when the property was bought by the Bright family in the 1930s.
So far our winter has been relatively mild, this is what it looked like at this time last year.

7"X5" Acrylic on board
Maddie doesn't like having her photograph taken. She doesn't even like it when I take out my sketchbook. I have many pictures of the back of her head and her retreating bum.
This is the first time I have ever tried to paint her, she looks a little worried.
