Beautiful work! I was surprised to see this on craftster because I know this picture, my g-g-grandmother was from Caswell Co., NC where the original picture was taken.
I'm surprised that a few people know this picture!! Because I never saw it before. I thought I found this great old photo that nobody else saw. I liked it because it reminded me of "Sullys", a store I used to pass on my way to school when I was a kid; it too had a plank front porch. Had I known this picture was that well known I wouldn't have painted it. But thanks for the kind words!
