Red House

February 23, 2009

I’m not sure where I’m headed, but this is another step in that direction.  This is from a photo taken from the highway, somewhere in Ohio.  It’s gouache, of course, on gessoed masonite ~ 8×10.

    Wow, I really like this painting! I live in SW Ohio, and the red house reminds me of some of the rural houses around here. Love the colors and brushstrokes in this one.

    I think you did a great job on the “bare trees” in your previous post. I like how the branches kind of merge into the sky.

      Thanks Debra! I really appreciate your kind comments. I love the houses and barns in that part of the country.

    This is nice, I like the broad brush strokes in the larger areas of canvas. Nice!

    I like this little painting a great deal, it has a warmth of touch and your personality seems to come through in ways that you don’t always see in this type of work. A bit forlorn as well – in a good Edward Hopper kind of way, someone I hope you get to look at. Do you work from life at all or just from photos?

    Thanks for you comment on my boulder paintings, by the way.

      Thanks Larry, for the comments and for stopping in. I meant it about the rock studies. I’ll be looking at them quite a bit, I think.
