 This painting https://jackncb.wordpress.com/paintings/on-the-river-st-johns/is another of architect Wm. J. Carpenter’s small watercolor paintings that he produced for the tourist trade in Daytona Beach, Florida during the Great Depression of the 1930s. These paintings were done in his casual days after a  successful architectural career in El Paso, Texas, Spokane, Washington, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,and St. Petersburg and DeLand, Florida. On the River St. Johns  

 The charming scene includes a romantic couple and canoe complete with fishing pole very reminiscent of the architect’s youth in England.  Limited Edition prints of this painting , published and signed by grandson Jack Carpenter are available from the Print Gallery.
