"Side Entrance", A Glimpse of Spring

"Side Entrance", 14x18, oil on canvas

Tired of Old Man Winter? Spring is here, but who'd know it? When I lived in Chester Springs, Penna. I would take a daily three mile walk that included a stretch of the old historic Horseshoe Trail hiking path. Along that road there was a lovely old house that would look rather drab all winter and then suddenly come to life with the arrival of Spring and her May azaleas. The side entrance to the house had a little meandering path that was flanked by azaleas and rhododendren. An old lamp post completed the picture postcard scene. I decided to paint the scene shortly after moving to Florida in order to keep the beauty of that little town alive in my memory forever.
