The two paintings shown today both show three girls in different garden settings. They are romantic paintings of dreamy dresses and hats. Most of us don’t look this way anymore. (I live mostly in blue jeans and paint spattered slacks) but it is fun to dream of what it would be like to be beautiful and useless! But I wouldn’t trade my dogs and work for anything!
A cafe sign and a coca-cola sign posted on an old house made me wonder–is it really a cafe or just a kid’s idea of ornamentation? I added the hydrangeas and gave it a spring time look.
This barn was located at Pocahontas, Arkansas, an east Arkansas town. The painting is 11 x 14. It had a tin roof which had weathered from years of use.
The top painting is a store on the square of an Arkansas town and the second painting I called “Eighty-second year” because someone told me that the building was 82 years old!.
This is a very small painting, only 6×8! There is sort of a rough texture to it that lends interest to the pose.
I was mostly interested in the roof of this small house! Reyno, Arkansas is a small town in east Arkansas. I have done several houses in this area.
I liked the French door look of this painting. The mass of pot plants was an added feature.
