The Nook, Pennsylvania landscape, 16x20

"The Nook", oil on gallery-wrapped canvas, 16x20

This is a painting I did last winter of a scene from the backyard of my old house in Chester Springs, Pa. I was never happy with how the painting came out, so I pulled it out this week and worked on it some more. I added some glazes, falling leaves and a sunbeam and it looks really pretty now. I also just discovered that my old house has gone on the market recently. I'd always thought I'd try to buy it back if it ever came on the market, but now I realize that I'm totally hooked on the blue skies and eternal sunshine that we have 95% of the time here in Southwest Florida. So I'll keep my lovely memories of Pennsylvania tucked away in my brain, and stay put here in the Sunshine state.
