"Fifty Shades of Green"

8 x 8"
oil on masonite
sold 

How could I resist this title - I looked at my palette and said out loud that I must have mixed 50 shades of green.  I'm so happy with this painting, it must be this personal love for old, little houses.  I spotted this one somewhere along the Lincoln Highway in Nebraska.

Wow, what a fab painting and the title is perfect. Love all the different shades you have used in the roof and the shadow on the wall is great too.

Wow. That is one stunning painting. Killer light. Everything about it is absolutely lovely.
And...have you been reading any good books lately? ; )

I just love this painting. It reminds me of being a little girl and going to my grandma's. I can feel the sun, smell the grass, and hear the street noise. Thank you.

Great painting, as all of yours are! I too love little houses, and buildings. Several years ago, my husband gave me a book about the tiny, "crooked" houses in Savannah. GA. My father and my aunt were raised in Savannah, and we have been there many times. Wish I was closer to paint all those funny little houses. Maybe another road trip for you?!

I posted that comment so fast, I forgot to say that your painting of a little green house just gave me an idea to run around our area looking for tiny buildings to paint, as the subject for a group of paintings! Cool! Thanks!

Yowza! That's a lot of green! A nice tribute to little houses... hope it brings in $ome 'green' as well!

What a charming painting. I love how you choose modest, little homes as your subject matter.
