The Puppeter's House–Hyde Park

"The Puppeteer's House–Hyde Park, 8x10, oil

This house is owned by a puppeteer couple.  In the 1970's they used to travel throughout Florida putting on puppet shows in different school districts.  They would bring the puppets as well as the stage and set up in the cafeteria or auditorium.  The kids just loved it.  He said in many cases it was the first live performance the children had ever seen.

I especially liked the house's bright color (to which the neighbors initially objected) and its combination of different roof angles.

Sunlit Porch–Tampa

"Sunlit Porch–Tampa", 8x8, oil

Just another sweet little Craftsman cottage in Hyde Park. Well it was little, until they added on towards the back and up, like so many in the neighborhood.  Now it's sweet and big.
