Vintage 1974

Today's image is scanned from my 1974 sketch and painting book. During the summer of 1974 I often went with my father to play tennis at the courts of Walnut Hill School, now a fancy performing arts academy in Natick, Massachusetts, my original home town. The Natick Tennis Club, where we were members, played there. Sometimes while my father's tennis games went on, I would sit out on the grounds and sketch. Late in August, just before it was time to go back to school, I did this painting of a house and tree on the Walnut Hill campus. I drew it on site and then finished it carefully in watercolor at home. Size is 6" x 9". I didn't go to Walnut Hill, I went to Dana Hall in neighboring Wellesley, Mass.
