Stow, Massachusetts includes a neighborhood named Gleasondale (formerly called Rockbottom) which has been an industrial area for over two hundred years.  The Assabet River flows there. The river formerly powered a mill, manufacturing cloth, which was built around 1854.  This mill with various additions and alterations, still houses a number of businesses, including woodworkers and cabinet makers.   A newer mill was also finished in 1919 which houses local businesses.
Here is a painting done on site:
It's 9x12 inches, oil on a panel.

This is an 8x10 size, painted on a panel.

 Betsy also had brought in some still life objects to set up an arrangement:
