I love old houses

Hi! Recently we camped near Yellow Springs Ohio and I ran around town shooting photos of wonderful old houses.  The picket fence drew me to this one.  There was a sidewalk in front but I made the decision not to include it.  This is water miscible oils on a 8" x 10" canvas.  Doing pretty well with the new oils, still miss tipping my brush into solvent but I'm hanging in there.  I've noticed they dry shinier than traditional oils. 

I painted this Saturday in Loveland Ohio with the Ohio Plein Air Society, I painted this painting of Rose of Sharon, I felt like doing flowers that day.  This also is the water miscible oils and is a 8" x 10" as most of mine are. 

Good to see you!
