I felt a little Hopper-esque with my composition of this piece. I sketched out several ways I could paint this house but I kept coming back to this one.
Oil on panel, 5x7 inches
The reception at Gallery 113 last night was wonderful! I think it was my favorite so far, even though the heat upstairs was almost unbearable. I had lots of visitors who had seen my work in the News Press. One old man came down just to see my work but couldn't get up the stairs, I felt so bad! His daughter helped me carry a few pieces downstairs so he could see.
I'm still not great at talking to strangers about my work, but I think I'm getting a little better, it seemed a bit easier last night. I'll keep practicing.
