Rural Twilight, 11x14"














This house, located near Ansonia, Pennsylvania, has intrigued me ever since I saw it for the first time. Perhaps is the spruces behind it that frame it so well and make it look imposing from the road.

Anyway, for several years I have been wanting to paint it but did not like the thought of just painting the photo reference. I wanted the painting to tell a story. Then, a few months ago, the idea of something happening inside the house in late evening came to me while I was painting sunsets, and this is the result.

Wow! Adriana. This painting does tell a story...a warm house! I love the pink sky that reflects on the house as well as the grass. Love it!

The sky is so beautiful and I love that we look at that lit window and wonder who is inside, and what might be happening inside the house. I can see why you were drawn to painting this.

What a lovely painting. I love the colors of the sky and the slope and colors of the hill…a very warm and calming piece.
