House and Shadow

8x10 Oil on Canvas
I just returned from a ten day vacation in the San Francisco area.
As much fun as it was, it is so nice to get back to painting.

Welcome back, you were missed! And what a wonderful painting to return to, you didn't lose your touch with just the right values and that signature color palette of yours.

Hi Karen,

I look at each one of your paintings as though it's a lesson. And this one is. So lovely. Such a magical treatment of light.

Perfect.

Take care,

Barbara

Hi Karen, Welcome back from the SF area, not sure where you were. We live in the SF East Bay Area! Wish that we could have crossed paths!
Your painting, as usual, is brilliant! I love the light and shadows! Was this done while you were out here? It looks like it could have been. Very gorgeous!

This is beautiful, Karen. As everyone else has noted, the light is outstanding. I love the way you use the most unusual colors and yet make them believable.
