This is a small sketch I made of an old Victorian house near Burnsville NC.   There was a paint out with quite a few good artists participating for prizes and I did this little one quickly and then painted a large version for the competition.   It was a very hot day and there were two dogs barking---  that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it..  My entry was terrible, didn't win, and didn't deserve to.  There were a lot of nice people there and it was a fun day, anyway.   Burnsville is a pretty little town if you ever get around the mountainous part of NC.        Mike
