Tim and I went plein air painting early one Friday morning to capture this Victorian house at 5204 Fifth St. and the corner of Rocklin Rd., Rocklin, CA. It was a challenge to draw! About this house, the newspaper records, "Matt and Molly Moore built the Queen Anne-style house on the southeast corner during 1905, the year of their marriage. Matt was the Southern Pacific Railroad station agent; Molly was a schoolteacher and the pianist at St. Mary’s of the Assumption Catholic Church" (Placer Herald, March 3, 2013). Watercolor, 14.5" x 10.5".
