American Charmer–Hyde Park

"American Charmer–Hyde Park", 8x10 oil on board

This cute little house in Hyde Park is my latest home portrait commission.  My client saw me painting a portrait of her neighbor's house and wanted one of her own.  As you can see the house is a very simple cottage (which has been enlarged to the back like many in the area) onto which she had added accessories to turn up the charm: Agapanthus flanking the walk, topiary at the front door, Adirondack chairs with pillows, a red mailbox, and an American flag.  Sweet!
