By RICHARD F. BELISLE
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - It's 11 down and one to go for Waynesboro area artist Landis Brent Whitsel and his series of 12 historic watercolors showing life in this southern Franklin County community from 1897 to 1997.
The llth painting in Whitsel's series, "Made in Waynesboro," is his interpretation of a year-long series of events at Renfrew Park beginning in the fall of 1996 with the planting of a winter wheat crop by horse-drawn equipment and the harvesting of that crop this summer with more horse-powered equipment and a Peerless steam tractor that was made in Waynesboro.
Prints of the scene became available on Dec. 11. Like its predecessors, there will be 490 copies made, numbered and signed by the artist. The price for all prints in the series has remained the same since the first was painted in 1991 -- $75 unframed, $175 framed.
