6 x 6"
oil on panel

A couple weeks ago, a friend sent me the link to an opportunity I couldn't pass up - the Edward Hopper House in Nyack, New York is asking for artists' submissions for their Annual Small Matters of Great Importance Juried Exhibition.  At the time, I was hedging on adding several more to my upcoming show Here Comes The Sun, and I figured I'd do both - come up with three small paintings (which is required), put them in the grouping and cross my fingers they'd be chosen for the Hopper House Show later in October.  Why not give it a try.   

This setting is from Anamosa, a little town in Iowa, along the Grant Wood Byway.  Please click here for a larger view.

For artists who may be interested in submitting work to the Edward Hopper House exhibition, please click here for more information.

This is great - awesome light and the colors remind me of a Morandi landscape - very fresh, thanks for posting.

This is such a wonderful painting, Karin- and in the true spirit of Hopper. Love these colors- could stare at them all day.

It was, I'm sure a hot day... I feel the sun burning my pale skin.

Magnifique tableau!
