The Dilkes's House

The Dilkes family used to own this home on Bargaintown lake. When my Dad was a kid he would help them run thier concession stand every winter...they sold hot chocolate to ice skaters. Funny the last time I remember this lake frozen solid was in 1976. Another piece of trivia...the first time I ever used oils was when I was 18....I tried to do this view and ended up with mud...didn't return to oil paint until 25 years later...now ten years after that I thought I'd try it again...what's different now is there are big houses built all around the property...and the lake never freezes at all any more. Times they are a changing. 5x7
