Welcome Home, Mrs. Marsh

California pioneer John Marsh built this grand stone house for his wife Abby, but she died before construction was complete. I decided to create an alternate universe where her story has a happier ending. This painting was part of an exhibit and auction benefitting the John Marsh Historic Trust, whose goal is to restore this historic house and open a new state park around it.  (Sold)
