coach house, good hope, trelawny, jamaica
i've spent a lot of time at good hope over the years, is an amazing place; lovely beautiful, tranquil, verdant, vibezy ...
who wouldn't want to try and draw this, eh ... so had this solo show in jamaica and drew it, hung it ... love it.
dready art 'the coach house' - 20x30 - limited edition archival pigment print
when i drew this, the coach house was a stand alone building, full of bedrooms, the grille door in teh middle held a long table, some scattered chairs; they used it as a dorm for kids camps, somebody lived in one of the bedroooms, it had a small kitchen to the back ... now its been refurbished, beautifully, and out back a disappearing edge pool, a stand alone modern kitchen dining building that runs perpendicular, connected to the old house by a covered breezeway so as not to interfere with its lovely georgian-ness ... all creating a 6 bedroom holiday villa ... i wanna stay there.
yesterday we walked from down bottom, by the business end of things, at the end of the day - I'd hoped we would catch the sunset from up top, but it was a cloudy evening; the light though, fucking lovely - up the hill round the back of the great house, back down through the gardens and down all the way to the river ... as we were leaving the great house area, i stopped just as the drive ran down the hill, turned and snapped a pic back up the hill of the coach house.
his story ...
