Back at the easel
I haven't titled the painting above, but it's a sort of continuation of the series of metaphorical houses and homes I began while still back in Texas. If you have suggestions, be sure to let me know.
While I love painting whimsy, I tend to think that painting more traditional subjects teaches me more about the craft. (This may or not be true. After all, thoughts are not necessarily facts!)
I found a reference photograph from a trip to the Museum of American Art in Ogunquit Maine and am aiming at making the image mine, rather than terribly realistic. Watch this space to see if I can capture the light, the warmth and the mystery of this scene.
