Ode To Joyce - The Old Mill


The old mill in Gays Mills
Oil painting of the old mill in Gays Mills, Wisconsin. This is where I grew up. Many years ago, a local artist, Joyce Haggerty painted many beautiful scenes of rural Crawford County. I remember as a small boy gazing at her many paintings, especially of the "Old Mill" in Gays Mills. Her use of dark umber and other earth tones to create the Kickapoo River were exquisite. I was also amazed by the fact the paintings were of the old mill that was torn down years before. It was a piece of history that she had brought to life. My attempt here, is in honor of that memory. This painting has been donated for raffle, to St. Mary's Catholic Church in Gays Mills, WI.
