I should have been working in the yard this morning, but I painted instead. This wee little painting (7" x 5") is a house that I passed everyday when I worked at Millington Middle School. I loved my drive to work because I passed fields and ponds and farms and wooded areas. I enjoyed the colors and the textures of every season. This farmhouse was almost hidden when the trees had leaves, but it was at its best in early spring. It seemed to glow orange in the sunshine before the trees created an umbrella of shade. It also had random spreads of buttercups smeared across the lawn as well as blooming forsythia and spirea. I took a picture of it before the dead winter grass in the unkept area next to the road turned green.
