I'll be adding paintings to this blog at irregular times. My old blog had as part of the title "painting a day" and I never lived up to that.

I encountered this old home while driving through rural Oregon. I was attracted to the graphic image produced by the weathered surfaces and the exposed structure. Unanswered is the question of why someone invested in a new metal roof when the house was in this condition. Also, I've been experimenting with leaving some of the colored priming show through. This can be seen most clearly in the sky and roof. oil on canvas 11 X 14 $300 unframed
I'm mostly retired and living in an area that is one of the country's premier spots for beauty- the Columbia Gorge. My house/studio is located out in the country (1st time for this city boy) bringing both joy and challenges.
