There's a nice sense of light there. Very nice use of colors. Great brush work, especially on the scenery.

Nice painting of the house. Great light in the sky as well.

Some really beautiful painting here - lovely colour and blending, very nice foliage in the trees and that skeleton tree is beautiful!
The main part of the house seems to be falling to the right a bit, the planking should be the same angles as the extension bit on the right .... but it just makes it look as if it's, perhaps, on its way out!:lol:

I live in North Carolina, and yes, there are houses around here with "character", just like this one. They get that "tumbly" look from age, and the planking is unaligned from a) the house settling, and b) the extension was added years after the main part. --Rich

Believe it or not, this one is located in Mocksville, North Carolina !! It is believed to have been built in the early 1800's. The right side, was indeed added to the original home.

Super painting. Love the worn wooden boards. It makes me wonder who lived there, how many children they had. A good work like this draws the viewer into the picture .

Thanks to all of the nice comments. I really enjoyed doing this one as it represents some old family history.

Very nice. I am predominately an oil painter looking for realism in landscapes. I also have done a few paintings in acrylics. I find that acrylic paintings are often abnormally bright and chromatic and are dramatic but lack realism. Your painting mutes the colors to look more natural. I like it very much.
