This is the painting I am starting this week. I love doing these single home paintings. I love Victorian homes. I am not crazy about this yellow color but, in the reference photo that I am using it is lovely.
I am trying to get a feel of when I should stop with the winter paintings and move back to grass. I watched a beautiful movie last night about Thomas Kincade. I didn't think that I would love it as much as I did. I am not a giant fan but, it was really touching. I did identify with a lot of the feelings that Thom had growing up. It is comforting to know that he had to put up with rejection and criticism. One quote from the movie that I adored is "art at its highest level can introduce men to their souls." George Wessels. I don't know if he actually said that but he did in the movie. I think I am going to make it into a t shirt.
