Coventry Country Store

Paint out at Muse Le Belle Artisteis in Coventry CT.
Painted in the past 5 hours.... a lot of people talking but especially me. Oh well. It came out all right. Building was very old. In all fairness to myself I did start an 8x10 and then set that aside to get tacky and started the 6x8 and just kept going with that.
I looked it up on Wikpedia: W.L Wellwood General Store, under new ownership, has been renamed "Coventry Country Store". The general store was originally built in 1787 making it one of, if not the oldest, General Stores in America (past owner claims to have not found one older).
