Grant Street Winter Murmuration Sketch

Grant Street Winter Murmuration Sketch Katherine Kean
graphite 8 x 8 inches

Another imaginary murmuration, I obtained a photograph of the house we grew up in from my sister, photographed by a friend of hers - and permission to use it as reference - thank you kindly Kris and Mark.

The house, built in 1896, is a historical building and has had some restoration. The enclosed second story sunporch was my first art studio. The depth of the snow and the wintry feeling are as I remember New England winters to be.

Thanks, Kathryn - it was cold outside in the winter, but we had heat, as well as some other fun features; two staircases, a double door that separated the living and dining rooms and slid out of the way into the wall.
