Ancestral Home


Ancestral Home_1.jpg

My wife and I took a trip with our parents to Britain to visit the towns our ancestors were from.  We traveled all over England, through Wales, and into Scotland.  A very important village to my wife’s family is Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire in England where her Berrett ancestors resided.  We were given a tour of the town by a distant relative who still lives there.  This painting is the home of Robert Berrett, her great-great- great grandfather’s brother.  It still has a thatched roof.  I thought it was so charming I had to paint it.

Beautiful painting! Such great memories of being in Steeple Ashton and actually seeing ancestors’ homes. You have done a great job of capturing that choice experience.
