NEIGHBORS HOUSE #13
This scan wasn't quite right but the sky is blue not green but the one below was closer to the original. You decide.
I painted this from the comfort of my car. The house is on a slight hill. Sitting at street level gave me the opportunity to look up at this cozy porch. Sometimes in the afternoon someone is sitting on the porch smoking. I saw the curtains move a few times checking on me, but no one came out. I wonder what the painting would be if I were sitting on the porch looking at the neighbors house across the street. The wonderful green got into the sky when I photographed it. It isn’t in the original painting.
