Finished Oil Painting ...


Just finished tonight, this oil painting.
Found out its 14x8.5" - don't know why I thought it was 11x9"!
I haven't got a title for it yet.
Someone suggested a song - music/melody.
To me it's like 'peeking through' foliage, but it just doesn't suit it.
It's a house in Georgia. Can't remember where, exactly.

It is FOR SALE:

What's currently on my easel: WIP - 9x11" oil of a house


I primed the canvas orange. Oil. 9x11" gallery-wrap canvas.

This is a house in Georgia. It's not meant as an exact architectural image. Just working on something 'pretty' (I hope).

Still have a way to go yet. Have a few things to correct/refine.
