This was the first house on the tour. It was built in the late 18th century for a sea captain. The old barn across the street also belonged to the owners. The current owners had it restored and use it for entertaining.

I already showed you yesterday the second house on the tour. This was the third house. I only wish I could show you the inside but rules are rules, ask even though I wanted to sneak a picture, viagra you know when it comes to getting photos that I really want, I’ll go to great lengths to get them, but rules are rules and I had to behave myself. It wasn’t easy.

Ok, I think I have teased you long enough, right Barb? ┬áHere are photos of some original Rufus Porter murals painted in 1833. These are in my friend”s house. I can not imagine how wonderful it would be to live with these murals! Rufus Porter was an amazing man and there is a whole lot more to tell about him, which I plan on doing sometime in the near future.

Looking at these photos again just makes my heart sing. I have not painted murals for a few years now, but I am totally motivated again!!!!!!!

This is a house in the town of Lyme. It’s an early one. Notice the similarity of the real house and the one painted above by Porter. It was so cool to ride around this area and see the houses and the scenery that influenced him. In the mural above you can also see the way he painted the bottom of the wall. I guess this was his version of a faux chair rail.

That’s all for today guys. I have to get some house work done and then go buy some canvas. Can’t wait to get back into painting again. I have lots more to show you, so until next time-

    …Again, WOW! :o )

    …I did not know that was his idea of a chair rail. Actually I thought it was where they had taken chair rail off to do the restoration…but I like his idea so much better! Does your friend live in the house? I noticed the rooms are bare…or is that just during restoration? Either way, I adore that house!

    …I’m so happy to hear that you are going to get back into painting! Do you long to return to painting murals? All I know is your murals certainly mimic those of Ol’ Rufus…he’d be proud! ;o)

    …Thanks for letting us tag along! This was fun and interesting…

    …Blessings… :o )

    tj, I learned that about Porter too, about the chair rail. There is so much more to this man. He was just an amazing and talented person.. More about that later.

    No not painting murals, I’m going to paint on framed canvas. Bought a nice big canvas today 24 x 36, perfect for over a mantel.

    More tomorrow.

    tj, I forgot to answer your question about the rooms being bare, yes, that is because of the restoration that is going on. I am hoping to get photos of the house when it is all done. If I do, I’ll post them.
