6"x6" oil on primed art board. "Red Door" This is one of my favorite paintings. I think because of the subject matter, the time of day and the process. I am so drawn to homes with unique architectural character. So many older homes have style and art was a part of the process. An important thing that I wanted to achieve when I painted this, was to use the least amount of brushstrokes possible. Carefully placing each stroke with purpose. This sounds like it could make the painting too "tight" or "uptight" but the opposite is true. It wont have that overworked feel to it, which can sometimes happen. It is not always an easy task. It is possible to have enough brushstrokes in one painting to make 2 or 3 paintings.
