Still a little touching up to do on this approx 15" x 19" oil. Am experimenting so I gessosed an area on an old scrap board and started painting. Trying to keep loose and lively! I collect photos from the Civil War Era to about the mid 1950's-I drew inspiration from one of the slides I had converted.
