This painting is based on photographs of the Grist Mill located in Badcock State Park in West Virginia. A friend and co-worker of mine named Ken recently passed away. Ken moved to West Virginia sometime after retirement. Ken was a good friend and he loved to share the beauty of his beloved WVA by posting scenic photographs on Facebook.

I did this painting with Ken in mind.

The Glade Creek Grist Mill at Babcock is a fully functional mill that was completed in 1976. It is considered one of the most photographed places in the state.

It is my hope my painting does justice to this iconic site and in some small way honors Ken’s love of his cherished state.
