Northern Settlement

This painting has been sold

Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

I did this a while ago and then discarded it as a loser but the other day I picked it up and kind of liked it if only for the story it tells, of how we around these parts have to build where the hills let us, so the houses sort of settle in the dips and troughs the hills provide. It's nice I think.

Landscapes have always been a challenge to me Jeffrey but I must say I've been enjoying this recent challenge more than I have in the past. Thanks for visiting and your valued comments.

Definitely a keeper. Impressionistic while being recognizeably realistic.
