I got to thinking and as a suggestion from a forum friend here. I love old historical buildings and things... and she suggested that maybe it would make a fun project. I opened up a bit farther than just old houses. Any building that is a bit old and interesting to look at.

So, with her thanks for spurring the idea. Let's see some of paintings of those lovely old houses that are oozing with history and memory.

Here's some references to use, if you like them. Feel free. Or snap yourself some old buildings around your own neck of the woods. Use whatever tools you like and whatever theme you like. Long as it's an old building, I'll love it!

Couple more. That'll be all for now though. Maybe some more later, if anyone shows some interest.


ps. All of these buildings and pictures were either taken by me or off of the brochures from the tours there. Some of the oldest houses are found in Salem, MA.

Great idea Magen. If I can squeeze out some time, I'm going to take a run at one of these.

Magen, I am having trouble with my mac as far as saving pictures and placing them. There is a house that I wanted to post that is in town. I would love for you to see it.
I will PM you with the address and see if you can upload it for me.

Thanks so much Magen. I really appreciate it! Just got back from town and passing this house. It is so hauntingly beautiful to me.
