BURIED TREASURE

Last week the Lower Merion Conservancy sponsored a paint-out to benefit their activities.  They gave all the artists who signed up maps to historic sites and we all went out in the 90' weather to find the spots and try to capture them in paint.  It was quite interesting to discover these lovely places, many of which I had never known about before.  This painting is of some old walls at HARRITON HOUSE built in 1704.  It was at one time the home of Charles Thomas who was the first and only secretary of the Continental and Confederate Congresses.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to the Conservancy.
