Not your run-of-the-mill art…

If you watched the video that Meghan masterfully put together telling the story of our recent West Virginia roadtrip, then you know we visited a place of special meaning along the way. The Old Grist Mill in Babcock State Park was long ago the subject of a high school art project of mine. When we discovered this place actually existed along the route we had already planned, we were there in a heartbeat so I could relive every careful stroke of colored pencil on paper. Well, after posting about this through the video the first time, my parents saw the perfect opportunity to return said artwork to the original artist and it now hangs in our living room next to the bookcase. I took a photo of it and here it is for all of you to enjoy, critique, and compare with the actual thing (via the photo taken last month).
