"Cricket Hour"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

This is one of my favorite subjects to paint small. Someone's home tucked into their own little world. This little Georgia house was nestled in the hardwoods - with the heavy, hazy, evening sky above. It's that time of day when the relief from the hot sun starts to set in and the crickets take over the quiet. It's quintessential Georgia in the summertime.

also...... I have new copies of all five volumes of my 'painting a day' books reordered, including a new book of my alphabet series - they should arrive by the end of the week. As soon as they land here, I'll make them available.

Great painting, I love the glow you captured in the sky, on the front porch, and through the windows. They each have a different light quality and temperature, and it is so effective!

I have been waiting for the number 5 volume and the alphabet series is icing on the cake! I love the evening paintings.

This is a lovely painting. Your title is just perfect. And what wonderful light!

Summer condensed into a six inch square.

Well done!

This has such a nice feeling to it. It feels like home. Nice title too.
