I spotted this view of a white home on the shores of Ellicott Creek and it gave me the impression that it’s a lone house in the wilderness. In reality, it’s part of a suburban neighborhood but working on this painting made me think about what it would be like to live in the woods in the middle of nowhere with a creek in the backyard. I would survive, as long as there was enough room for a painting studio… and a garden.

    1. Thanks Laurelle! Landscape painting is so popular it's difficult to stand out–so I appreciate the compliment.

    1. Thank you Sheila! I used the acrylics in a manner similar to watercolor to make the water look glossy and reflective.
