Hermitage

hermitage.jpgI‘ve been working on a few sketches that will eventually be turned into detailed paintings or drawings for a show in May.  The theme has to do with the town I live in CT.  There are a few interesting histories from the area that I could draw upon–one being the town’s(long dead) hermit, George Washington Gilbert.  His house crumbled around him until he reached old age and until a wealthy man eventually built him a small cottage to live.  Mr. Gilbert was friendly in his odd lifestyle and often amused visitors with complex math problems.

This drawing is from a photograph of his crumbled abode….I’ve just embellished the flora around it a bit.
