In Search of Home #3

16 x 20 Oil on wrapped canvas

This is the third and final for the "In Search of Home" series. It is an island home, on an island off of Portland. A bit different from the first 2 I did, but this home had a feeling of coziness as I walked by on a cool, foggy day. A lot of the homes on this island are old cottages, with a nostalgia to a past time, in contrast to all the new building that goes up. There remains a charm here, when visiting, we could give our kids five dollars in the morning and not see them until late in the day! Safe, fun and a little old fashioned.

  2. Love all your "In Search of Home" paintings! The one with the dogs is so warm and comforting. This last one is very appealing...wonderful brushstrokes and colors!

  4. Even with the bright colors, you can sense the mistiness of the day. This painting is a real beauty...so pleasant to look at. I can totally see this on my wall :-)

  5. You have an amazing ability with the oils to capture luminosity, they look a lot like watercolors. They are really beautiful.
