John Stermer Drawing, 1946: Neighbor's House, Elmira New York (With notes)

Drawing Of A House, 1946

Greetings!  I would like to share with you a drawing of a house John Stermer did back in 1946.  It is a of drawing of a house across the street from his parent’s home in Elmira NY.

John Stermer drawing dated 1946. Study of a neighbor's house in Elmira NY. With notes an corrections

The drawing is unusual in that it has some notes and corrections around the house.  I don’t know who did the corrections.  In looking at the writing, my guess is that some of the notes are from John – for example the type of pencil he used is noted.  And, the corrections may be from a trusted instructor or mentor.

In any case, it is a fragile drawing and I am amazed it has survived!  Thanks to Karen Stermer Seewald (John Stermer’s niece) for rescuing the drawing!
