I painted this en plein air during two afternoons along the Gale River in Franconia, New Hampshire.frame.
I have always been enthralled with this historical site in Franconia. This Iron Furnace. This is the sole surviving blast furnace which bears much history. This site has buildings of historical artifacts and documentation which explain much of the history, thanks to the historical society of Franconia. This was on a map in 1805 and heightened in 1859, yes 200 year old history. Built of Granite and lined with firebrick. Iron production decreased in 1865. More facts and information can be found on the web or at the historical site itself. I met folks from Franconia and many tourists during my session which is always a delightful plus when outside working.
The original has sold but prints and reproductions are available.
