Chestnut Hill Hotel

From a Philly guide site:
 "The Chestnut Hill Hotel is a 36-room boutique hotel on Germantown Avenue in the heart of Chestnut Hill. Starting with an inn on that location in 1772, the hotel was rebuilt in 1865 and was refurbished in 2011 to have a historic look and modern convenience. It is surrounded by the Chestnut Hill Farmers’ Market, the Chestnut Hill Grille and an outdoor restaurant."
It certainly looks inviting on any sunny day in the warm weather as people sit outside under the porch and enjoy a meal.  I love the way the sky is reflected in the windows on this beautiful spring day.  This painting will be in my show at the Graver's Lane Gallery in May.
