Sweet Pea–Hyde Park, Tampa


'Sweet Pea–Hyde Park, Tampa", 8x10, oil

Another house from my favorite neighborhood in Tampa.  I loved the cheerful yellow columns against the green house and crisp white trim.  Of course, I overstated the red flowers a bit more than life, but they were there.

That's one thing I like about painting, I can emphasize what I like and downplay what's not so important (like the house next door).  I always tell my students, "You're the artist and you can do what you want!"
