If you live anywhere near the northeast, you are probably wondering if spring will ever arrive. At least that is how I've been feeling lately with one nor'easter after another. A brief vacation to a warmer place gave only temporary respite from this downright cold and dreary weather. But, all is not lost as I step into my studio each day, I can forget about the snow covering my windows and just escape by living vicariously through the places I paint.
When I am not painting work for shows and exhibitions, I'm hard at work creating memorable house portrait paintings for my clients. Most, if not all of my house portrait paintings are from reference photos I take during the warmer months that showcase my clients homes in the best light, both literally and figuratively. I enjoyed painting this home because of its beautiful yellow color and lots of green grass...just what one needs to see everyday during the dead of winter. Roses in bloom, full foliage, and of course, some beloved pets as well. So, as I wait for spring to make its official entrance, I will continue to paint the things I love.
