"Shut In" 2011 oil on canvas 54" x 54"
This is the view of the William Gulick house from the long gravel driveway. I loved the bright sunlight streaming in the second story windows against the peach colored walls. The reflected light was lovely to paint. I took a chance with the composition by making the strong profile shape of the house so small on a large canvas and letting the empty sky become a balancing entity. I think it gives the house even more of a dynamic quality. No clouds necessary.
