View Full Version : Old Farmhouse - Christmas Gift

First, this one was a rush job, so it was painted in about 6 hours total.. I wish I had 6 more to clean up angles, highlight, etc.. I am very happy with how the slate roof turned out, so that's why I'm posting it.

I like painting from old pics... this was a picture of my MIL's Grandmother's old farmhouse that no longer exists. Pic inset.

I haven't painted much in the past three years, so it was fun getting back into it. I painted this one on one of those expensive boards, which I don't like nearly as well as a regular canvas... doesn't seem to take the paint as wellHappy Holidays!

Very nice! I like old houses and barns, etc. I know it will be appreciated.

You would never say you haven't painted much in the past three years. This is very good indeed and I am sure whoever receives it will be delighted.
Happy New Year to you too.
