Cooper’s Shed is the first in a short series of paintings I am doing on the small, nearly ghost town, of Cooper’s Falls. I introduced Cooper’s Falls and the grandson of it’s founder Mr. Frank Cooper to you in August. This is a shed that sits behind the old Community Hall across from Mr. Cooper’s childhood home and the old store. The building is nearly absorbed by the forest behind it, but still stands strong – much like the town it resides in. I hope to share the paintings with Mr. Cooper when they are all complete.
It is so hard to believe, now that the snow has already fallen, that summer was just a short time ago. I sat by the Falls that run behind the old store at the end of Lover’s Lane, when the air was still so warm. I hope this little painting is a reminder of summers past.
