House on Edge

Diane Mannion, House on Edge, 6x6" oil

      Magenta underpainting, then palette knife block-in, refined with brush.  Pushed color as patches of pattern.  Especially liked the turquoise window pattern.
Here's the underpainting!  
      This house is on the edge of Charlotte Harbor next to a public parking lot.  Painted it in 2010 and can see how the palm tree on the right has grown in two years and has had its thatching removed.  Captured the light in 2010 and the color in 2012.

Is it for sale?

Thank you, Todd! I've been waiting until the paint dries before putting my paintings up for sale. Takes a couple of weeks to dry. As soon as I do, it will be posted here and on and and my website.
