Old Slater Mill

Old Slater Mill

As a child and early teen living in the New England area I would head out on some weekend walks toward Newport. On the way there I would walk the Sri Chinmoy Peace Bridge over the Blackstone River (disgustingly polluted,) past the Old Slater Mill (that was painted reddish brown back in the 1960’s), sometimes going in side for a look around at the antiques.

  1. Thank you … and give my love to Binky, too 🙂

  2. Good morning sweet Deb
    there is a lady on twitter – a writer that needs a book cover artist
    i don’t know – didn’t know if you do book covers
    i sent her you blog name –
    her name is Nicole storey
    Lots of huggs for a great week ahead xx

  3. I really like this, Deb–the reflections of the trees, the windows like dominoes, the blues in the sky. I see more contrast between blue and green here, but more muted this time around. Have a good week out there:-)

  4. Your rendition here makes the painting seem antique in itself.

  5. Lovely painting and memories, Deb! Have a great day! Hugs! xoxo

  6. Neat story, Deb, and a great picture!

  7. Lowry would have loved this one! 🙂

    Love and hugs!
