Midnight in the Window of the General Store by 

*© 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved

It’s 1874 – a sultry, summer Friday midnight in Connecticut. An advertising placard for Comstock, Ferre & Co. – located in Old Wethersfield and the oldest continuously-operating seed company in America – holds pride of place in the front window of a general store.

The quiet main street is reflected in the window as well. Most everyone is tucked in and fast asleep, but if you look closely, you’ll see an elderly gentleman tiptoeing off the porch of the boardinghouse across the street. It’s anybody’s guess as to what he’s been up to.

Digital grunge oil painting from an original photograph shot in August, 2009 in Mystic, Connecticut.*
