    The Old Homestead

    Done in oil and knife, Deserted now, but at one time this was a home to a family, took this pic of the house the other day when my husband and I were out for a drive, love to look around for old buildings to paint. I added the old van and overgrown grass and added the trees to make it more interesting, hope you like it

    I like the painting Pat but don't like the idea of deserted homes!
    Nice overall painting.

    I love old homes. Each one of them seems to be straining to tell all the stories it knows about it's occupants over the years.
    I like this a lot Pat. My estimation is that the van
    probably should be somewhat smaller to be in
    perspective with the house.
    Nice job.

    Thankyou Jasmine, I know it is sad when you see a deserted home and there are a lot in this area
    Barnburner, I thank you so much for your comment, I needed to know that and will work on that area of my paintings, very much appreciated

    Just about missed this. Great work. Lovely colors and great skills. Can feel the slight loneliness of the house. Something that isn't very easy to portray in an object. Very good stuff. I enjoy old houses and things like this.

    Nice idea, nice painting Pat. As barney says: try to park the van under the windows of the house... how tall the car would be, where it would reach...this kind of things i am asking myself when painting something i do not know how large and tall they should be.
