Fort Keys to Taylors Ridge

8" x 10" oil on canvas covered hardboard - painted en plein air, alla prima on 9-6-07 - $85 including shipping -
It was overcast on Thursday before the Battle of Tunnel Hill. I was set up at Fort Keys to paint the old shed and cornfield which play a big role in the reenactment. Several folks from Mississippi had just put up their tent in preparation for the battle to come. The meadow was peaceful under the early September sky; the trees showed signs of Autumn colors soon to come.

I like the shed in the field, amid the greens.

Thanks Ron. Most of the time this little shed is used for storage, but it plays the part of temporary headquarters for the Confederate Army during the Civil War reenactment.
