Still mining the rich treasures from our last trip up north.
This seemed worthy of re-posting because it looks like a totally different painting after revisions and a photo that has much more accurate lighting.
Tucked into mostly-medium-value surroundings, this bright house is given ample opportunity to shine.
These small paintings are listed as available, but for now, I’m really enjoying them in my home. (Photos below so you can see why I love them so much.)
I love the orchards and vineyards on this peninsula…one right after the other, not to mention the stunning view of the bay from both sides. This little house on a hill caught my attention coming, and going, and then circling around again to see it one more time!
My husband says he wants to live here, which is totally impossible because, although the lake and trees are indeed from a real photo reference, the house exists only in my imagination.
This house has been calling to me for so long!! Now that I’ve painted it once, I’m dying to interpret it again. For those who live in the area, you may recognize it as the abandoned house on Wilson, just north of 52nd Street, by the pond.
I used a different kind of brush than normal (synthetic vs. bristle), and handled the negative space in a manner I seldom employ. I found it very enjoyable, and will certainly experiment with this style again.
