Cottage commission

Commissions are not always easy since you’re constrained in both the subject matter and sometimes the medium and style. This one was different, a property with interesting rock features and evening shadows that begged to be painted. It’s oil on canvas 18″x24″ and has a happy owner on the north shore of Lake Superior.


An oil 48″ x 30″, sunset over the trees with the last rays just catching the fields of grass. The focal point is the field of poppies leading into the distance so little detail went into the barns perched over the valley.
