This was painted at one of my favorite haunts, Canterbury Shaker Village in Canterbury, NH. The mill pond fed the old mill that was part of the Shaker village complex, a religious community founded by the Shakers in the 19th century. The last Shakers at this village died not too long ago, but every time I paint there I think about the men and women who lived their entire lives on that hill behind the pond.
