Old Buildings


My daughter Maryjean arrived midmorning at my apartment last Friday morning. We drove down to Midland for the 9th Annual Juried Art Show at Quest Art. The reception and rewards were at 7:pm. We checked in at the Best Western. Maryjean discovered that there was a pool here. So off we went to Wal-Mart to find her a bathing suit. I do not know what it is, but I seem to end up in a Wal-Mart were ever I go.

I had not been to Midland since Quest Art’s last show in 2012. Since then, they had moved to their new location. It is a  beautiful location and spacious. We enjoyed a nice evening and met a few people that we chatted with. We had a wonderful chat with Hazel Ferry. Hazel was a volunteer for the night. She is a wonderful painter in watercolours. Hazel can be reached at her email.


The reception was over at 9:00. As I walked out the door the church across the street caught my eye. The beautiful stained glass windows were backlit with the brick wall lit by streetlights. The above composition is the result. I did not want the whole building. I concentrated on the windows and brick arches to achieve the desired effects.

We enjoyed our stay in Midland. There was a lovely little fish and chip establishment on the main street where Maryjean and I had supper. Well that is it for now. So until next time happy trails.
