6" x 6" Oil on Panel
I actually painted this painting the same day as the Two Lights painting. I knew I wasn't going to have time the next day and it was such a gorgeous day I had two panels prepped for the afternoon. After leaving Two Lights I had a few ideas of where I might paint, but car painting really does limit your possibilities. Where there is available parking is not always where the best vantage for a painting is. Drove around for an hour and 30 mins before the sun set I gave it one last shot at Scarborough Marsh. Unfortunately the same issue of parking and something to paint. I had pretty much thrown in the towel for the day and as I was pulling out of parking lot right in front of me was this farmhouse with the days last light on it surrounded by areas in shadow. Got my things out and worked really quickly. I do love the general feel of this painting. Thinking I may want to darken some of the shaded areas to make the house pop more, that is what drew me to the scene.
After spending over 20 years photographing professionally I thought it was time to explore something new and experience my world with paint and a brush.
