Paint Party Friday: Week 6, Year 5 Check-In

Welcome to Week 6 of Year 5 here at PPF!

Random.org this week chose #42 - Anthony Billings. A moment of serendipity led to Anthony capturing "The City of High Point" in a photo that he has since turned into this wonderful watercolour painting.  Not only is it the name of the train but also of the town of his birth!
