About “The Guest House”

Traveling around the Catskill Mountains during the summer of 2020, I passed a large farmhouse with a beautiful silo. On the road leading up to the house was a sign “Guests Invited”. This reminded me of the early days in the Catskills when small farms opened their doors for guests that were being treated for various lung diseases. These small farms gradually grew  into the large hotels like the Concord. I just couldn’t resist a photo and a sketch with a small painting following.
