This painting is of the First Parish Church United which is on the Common in Westford, Massachusetts. A beautiful building with a great deal of historical significance since it served as Westford's Meeting House for over 100 years. The early records of this wonderful rural town are still housed among the church records. The painting is an 8 X 10 oil on canvas board. I am pleased with the results I achieved. This painting is the second of a series of paintings that I intend to do of sites around Westford. In an earlier post I showed a view of the Gazebo on Mill Pond in Graniteville, one of the villages of Westford, which I painted in the Spring of 2010. The painting is available and is copyrighted 2010 Joe Lapiana.. I am looking forward to the cooler weather of September and October to do more plein air paintings and to working at my studio at #326 on the third floor of the Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA.
