8x8 oil on cradled panel
Click on the painting to view it larger.
From Cape Cod back home to Fort Worth.  Beautiful mornings call for plein air paintings.  Unfortunately, I had a limited amount of time so I grabbed my camera and took some reference photos.  I came across this interesting old house that looked as though it had been abandoned for quite some time.  
A man builds a house in England with the expectation of living in it and leaving it to his children; we shed our houses in America as easily as a snail does his shell. 
Harriet Beecher Stowe


  1. Very nice Linda, this feels like a old abandoned house. Love the painterly style.

  2. Nicely done....beautiful shapes does feel "lonely"!

  3. Linda I love how your paintings are looking softer and softer.

  4. I love your color choices and your nice soft edges. Great work.

  5. I love that quote Linda. I was raised with a father in the Navy so don't have that experience of really being rooted in a home.The painting really evokes a mood of isolation.
