This photo was taken in late August 2015 inside the living quarters at the Great Hope Plantation located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The period of time in history was around the late 1700’s.
I heard that Great Hope Plantation will no longer have interpreters but will be a self guided tour with signage only.
An early morning walk on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, VA is a refreshing treat for both mind and body. This particular morning was cool and chilly. Smell of smoke from nearby chimneys permeated the air with the smell of the season. This particular time of day a warm glow flowed from window of this home that gave me a cozy and comfortable feeling.
A house is a shell for the home inside, and the home is people within. Like the physical body is the temple for the Holy Spirt, and the heart is the soul that dwells within. What will make a home become a house, or what makes the body empty of spirit? Abandonment is sad either materialistic or spiritually. This painting I did is an abandoned house being strangled and pulled back to its elements. Can this house be turned back to a home? What will it take to put the soul back into the body and the Holy Spirit refilled?
