Deck and I are on our 8th day traveling in our RV. Were on our way back to Michigan after visiting his parents in FL (80th birthday party) and hanging out in Savannah, GA. Well had to see the Mercer House from the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, also a movie.
Tomorrow is a drive up to Lover's Leap in our Jeep. This is not a road for an RV. We did this drive a couple of years ago, it was soooo foggy, very nerve wracking-nail biting-foot braking (me) you get the idea, hopefully tomorrow we will get to see the sights.

Around my house are acres of state land to explore. Sometimes it's more fun to get off the beaten path and discover new places. One time we jumped off trail and came upon thick brush almost impossible to get through yet sensing something ahead. We broke through into a clearing and there stood an enormous oak tree almost six feet around. Surrounded by the thicket and the canopy from the tree we were completely enclosed in the forest. It became our special place to visit for many years.

My first huge painting, it was wondeful working large, only a little awkward to move around considering it's wider than I am tall.
Come walk into my woods.

Painting these abandoned houses has turned into a great adventure for me. Not really searching for them just keeping my eyes open.
In 2005-2008 when the housing market went upside down so many people walked away from their homes this maybe the aftermath. To date I have photographed 11 different homes.
After telling my husband about stopping at these houses he suggested that I carry boots and my gun when I travel and be more prepared approaching these places. Most of these houses are hidden in tall grass that's creepy to walk through and wearing tall boots does offer some comfort from snakes and other things. Sometimes they are in a remote location and that is part of the challenge.
This will be the 3rd painting in the abandoned home series, would like to hear your comments about this subject and what effect this disaster caused on you or someone you know.
