Shades of the past.

September 5, 2017

Working on the next step in the collection of paintings of Memaw’s homes from the past 91 years. As I mentioned before, it is quite extensive, so I  have begun working on them one by one.  

This painting is a great example of simpler times post World War II.  It is a quant 2 bedroom – 1 bath house with wooden steps and a side porch. Many hot summer days were spent in the yard or on the porch.  

I found it quiet challenging to paint all the changing values of summer greens and whites.  Though I think it successfully portrays the hot summer days of years past.

This is painting #9 in my list of locations.
