FDHS again

Elizabeth commissioned me to do a small watercolor of the house from the Frederick Douglass Historic Site. Oddly, the gift shop there didn't have any for sale, which I think is a first in the "historic homes" business. I think this is the 5th or 6th time I've done a rendition of this house. I should be able to draw it from memory at this point. I was so happy with the ink drawing for this and I'm afraid it lost something in the coloration, but then, I never like things as much when I do them in color. I'm just a line art kinda girl.
