A bit of the past

Early 1900's, gasoline pumps had
a calibrated glass cylinder on top.
The fuel was pumped up into the
cylinder. Pumping stopped; then the
gasoline was let out into the customer's
gas tank by gravity. Imagine?! We
found this vintage pump somewhere in
Tennessee or W.Virginia.?! Not sure.
Of course, this wonderful barn was what
caught my eye.

My First Oil Painting..

So who knew! I finally took the
plunge and walked to Hewlett Point
Beach L.I. and took a photo of this boat.
I bought oil paints years ago but
never dared to paint with them..
You all paint so beautifully with oil
as well as water that I wanted to at
least try.
