By the Old Mill reveals a perfect place to fish in the quiet of an old abandoned building. I always enjoy seeing places that have started to decay and collapse. I think I find them fascinating because their history is revealed. This particular building challenged me in countless ways with so many different materials (brick, reflections on glass, rusted metal, tree brambles and vines, water reflection, and the undergrowth of the distant woods). Although I loved figuring out how to portray these textures, it is the story of the place and the lone fisherman that drew me to paint it.
