Living ina tall house must be fun. I have a long one ....:rolleyes: Oh well !

This work is very peaceful to look at.
It seems rigt out of an older era, with the fences and polls, but ey ! It is still like that....

The light effect is very good and it is true for all your works :)

Hi Glenn! Have missed you being on here for awhile! Good to see another one of your beautifully imagined paintings. You know I find a certain sense of immutability about these houses. They should be and they are attractivly whimsical. At the same time they have a sense to them that if the very ground were to dissapear, they would remain in place. This particular one has a comforting "Come home, it's the end of the day" feeling. Good to see you again.

Hi friends
thanks so much for the postive comments. Nice to hear form you folks too. Been way to busy for my own good...fortunately it's art-busy so that's always nice.
Terry: yep, this is a commissioned piece so it's already spoken for. And Corvus has it right, this is a place I see in my head. Often I use true-to-life layout of the islands and water in the background, but the houses, roads etc.... are generally all from my twisted little brain. So Terry, in a metaphyisical way, I guess it's also from "where I'm at" too.
