This 8x10 is one I left for my hostess at the beach house. I loved the way the light hit the closed green shutters! I did it at early light, and it is a house across the street that you could see from the kitchen windows. No fear, I did it outside. However, I foolishly laid it down on the patio to dry out a little in the heat of the day, and left to paint somewhere else - and all kinds of sand, dirt, and debris blew onto the wet paint. When the paint is dry she can brush this off, but sheesh!
I love doing this, leaving a painting for the owner of a place I've gone to paint. I have another paint-a-thon coming up this Fall on Cape Cod, where I get to stay the week and paint like crazy, and they get to choose a painting. Wonderful for me, I hope also wonderful for them! They get to collect original art and it's off-season, so they're not really losing any money! So! If you know of anyone who has a vacation home and would like to trade a painting for time spent there in off-season, let me know!Pin It
