887 Tiny House on Stilts

On the slower, more scenic route home from Door County is the town of Algoma, where a cute little place called the Flying Pig Gallery and Green Space is a must see.  During the summer months, there is also a Farmers market and pretty landscape and gardens.  There amongst it all is this tiny "house" on stilts. Don't ask me how you get in or out of it.  I would guess it's just a little shed, but I think it's a very sweet vignette.  I hope you like the painting.

886 Drop Outs

Sometimes veggies and fruit get side tracked in a still life artist's house.  This was fun to paint.

884 Oh My Darlin', Oh My Darlin'

Happy New Year, everyone!  I'm getting my Vitamin C from Clementines during these frigid days of winter.  Brrr...

882 Hidden Away

In all the visits we've made to Door County, I had never seen this little vignette.  When we were there last month, there was a "Stop the car!" moment, when I got out to photograph this little house amidst the trees.  I love when that happens!

881 Things Are Looking Up

Here is another painting where my inspiration came from a recent visit to Venice.  The original scene was mostly black and grey and I enjoyed employing a complimentary palette for the painting while still respecting the aged nature of the building.
