The Farmers' Museum

Brooks Barn, Farmers' Museum, gouache, 5 x 5 inches
The Farmers' Museum of Cooperstown, New York demonstrates the daily business of a 19th century farm.

You can watch — and sketch — as re-enactors milk cows, make cheese, harvest garlic, weave cloth, and print pamphlets. (Link to video on Facebook)

Eugubino, Yeah, you're right. The right side of the church gable is too flat. That's what comes of rushing into paint!
