Singer Castle oil Painting

Singer Castle©2010 C.L.Burgess oil on linen 16 x 20

What woman wouldn't envy a girl marrying her man in a castle even in the 21st century?
My nephew will marry in the rose garden of this incredible former home of the Singer Sewing Machine magnate this coming Saturday. It is on the Dark Island, one of the  thousands of the Thousand Island region of upstate New York on the St. Lawrence River.

This is one photo I took the other day from our pontoon. for more info you can go to:
