Country Store with Caboose and Ghost by BJ Wright

8" x 10" oil on canvas covered hardboard - painted en plein air, alla prima - $85 including shipping -
This country store located on the Clisby Austin property in Tunnel Hill, GA, houses many Civil War relics. It is open during the annual Battle of Tunnel Hill reenactment set for September 8th and 9th. Several weeks ago Sandra and I were set up painting on the porch, avoiding the slight rain showers. There is an old pay phone, disconnected for years, beside the front door. I had just finished telling Sandra about some of the ghost stories I've heard connected with the property. Then the phone rang - twice! Disconnected for years, no outside wiring - but the phone rang twice. We both heard it.

Neat story BJ. One can almost see the ghost floating in the trees.

There is a ghost hunting group from Atlanta who comes to the battlefield about every year. They bring electromagnetic equipment and record images, sounds, etc. From what I've read, they usually find something that they can't explain.
