Swim and boat at your own risk-sold

Oil on canvas, 9" x 12"
The cottage that we rented for the week was on a pond, and this green cottage was the one next door. It was a cute, quiet place, as only two other cottages were occupied, and they were the ones furthest away from us. (Ours was in the middle.) There was a little sandy beach and a dock with rowboats, which I didn't include in this painting. (I couldn't resist the clothesline though.) Does it remind you of places your parents took you when you were kids?
$400.00 plus shipping.

I love all of your paintings, but especially the ones from the last few posts! Great colors, brushstrokes, and the light is amazing!

I really like your shadows. The cottage looks like a cabin we go to on Kentucky Lake. It brings to mind relaxing evenings looking at the water. Great job

What a charming place! Everything about this painting says "serenity". The variety of greens and blues work together so harmoniously. Really terrific light and shadows too!

It certainly does remind me of places I went when I was young! You captured the feel of "a place at the lake" so well. I love the shadows on the cottage too.
