Olmstead Cabin

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 8 inches -- Click Here to Buy

This is the original cabin at Olmstead State Park in Ellensburg, WA. It was built by the Olmstead family, who resided here since the pioneer era in the late 19th century. I like painting historic building structures. Since it's a state park, we can go there and paint anytime. Pretty much everything around this park is preserved as it was back then, yet the yards and gardens are very well maintained. I painted this when it was overcast. I might go back there and paint the same scene when the weather is different..
