The Old Pelham Public Library in Pelham,NH (18" x 24" Acrylic Painting)


painting of the old library, Pelham, NH
Description:
This painting features the Old Pelham Library, which is now the home of the Pelham Historical Society on Main Street in Pelham, NH. The painting is based on a photo which I took on on the morning of May 11, 2010. The lilacs and many of the other shrubs were blooming and the the sky was deep blue. I left a nearby house out of the painting in order to put the spotlight on the library itself.
For more information on the building you can visit Pelham Historical Society's web page:
