|"Under the Oaks–Hyde Park", 8x8, oil|
It was the red cushions that caught my eye on this house. That and the feeling of being in deep shade under tall oaks.
And don't those red cushions just make that porch so inviting? Notice how, when I painted them, it was only that one corner of the right one that got a stroke of the bright cadmium red paint. But that's all it took. The white paint right next to it and the darkness of the porch surrounding it makes it really stand out. I liked it so much I'm putting it on my business cards.
Happy, Happy New Year everyone!
