Kay Wall – Law Office – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor

I painted this portrait of Kay’s building for Janelle McKnight, who gave it to Kay for Christmas.  Wasn’t that sweet?

Kay tells me… ” It has been a little bit of everything.  A German man, Mr Seuss , I think, built it for a furniture making shop.  It was a pop factory,  and the city water line boys and local plumbers bring me bottles they unearth bearing the name. The corps of engineers used it as an office during the construction of the dam.  It was “Plock’s Undertaking Parlor”, and I have a wonderful photo of that!   Then, medical and dental offices.  Owning it has been one of my greatest blessings!”

Happy 2013!

About Bernard Baruch

The American financier and unofficial presidential adviser Bernard Baruch was known as the “Park Bench Statesman” for his penchant for taking meetings on park benches. He was born in 1870 in South Carolina. By the time he was 30, he had become a millionaire. During World War I, Woodrow Wilson asked Baruch’s advice on economic issues, which began a long-term relationship with the White House. He refused to become Treasury Secretary in FDR’s cabinet, preferring his unofficial role. He died in 1965.

    I love the red, too. I can picture this building as a pop shop, but not a mortuary!
