The Homefront: Summer of 1863

James Rodriguez's avatar James Rodriguez

"The Homefront: Summer of 1863" A magical teleportation device! This painting transports the viewer to Dearborn, Michigan of the 19th century.. Extensive research of maps and books went into making this unique window to the past faithful to the actual scene. Every building, feature and person is part of the experience. A rail line and plank road connected the pastoral village to the outside world. It was a prosperous farming community, with apple orchards, cherry tree hills and a new school. In the midst of the turmoil of the Civil War there were glimmers of hope for the future.
