Amish Laundry

Going to Amish country was like going back in time in many ways.  One of the things that really brought a smile to my face and the smell of clean, slightly damp clothes to my nostrils was seeing laundry hanging on the line.  I have not smelled that smell for more years than I can count and yet as soon as I saw a clothesline full of clean clothes my olfactory light bulb lit up like a Christmas tree.  They say that smell is the best inducer of a memory and I believe it.
I took several shot of hanging laundry and did  this painting at group yesterday.  I have done several paintings like this in the past and for some reason I really enjoy it.  I hope you do.
