James Tennison Paints The Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House

A few years ago I painted this small watercolor study of a nearby house with the intention of painting a larger oil soon after. It took a few years but I finally returned to the subject and the oil painting is done.

The Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House (named for the three families who have resided in it) is Fort Worth's premier example of the Queen Anne-style Victorian architecture. It was built in 1899 on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River in an area then known as Quality Hill.
