George’s Postcard Note: The Trent House is one of Trenton’s most prestigious historic houses. It sits by the river on a prominent hill. It was fun trying to find it within the modern downtown among freeway access roads, modern office buildings, and one-way streets. Finally, I came upon it in this beautiful green oasis amid the concrete and blacktop. I chose this view early one morning, a crisp cool fall one. Shadows cast by the early sun, and the very large central cupola catching its light I found particularly interesting to paint.
