Basin Park from Main Street, Eureka Springs, Carroll County

Basin Park from Main
11X14, Oil on Canvas

Here's another older piece. Eureka Springs is a fantastic little town in the northwest corner of the state. It has quite a few galleries, many of which exhibit very high quality local, regional, and national art. The Basin Park Hotel is a landmark to say the least. We've stayed there a few times and have been on the ghost tour (no ghosts chose to make themselves known to us though). This year we opted to stay outside of the downtown area at another hotel.
I love this composition but my paint handling has improved markedly since this one. By the time this whole project is over I imagine I'll have done a couple more pieces from Carroll County and Eureka Springs in particular.
