Sugar Loaf Road

Yesterday Polly and I went and found this great location on Sugar Loaf Road off of Middlebrook Rd outside of Staunton. We were on our way to pick up paintings at the Bath County Art Show and knew to take our paints with us! And when getting there I found out I had sold two paintings and received a small award  :  )    This is 12" x 36" oil on canvas, framed  $375.
