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.
