Commissioned Piece - NFS
9 x 12 Acrylic on canvas panel
This is the second commissioned Home Portrait, finally finished! This one was a little bit of a struggle. There are many things going on in this painting - trees with leaves, trees without, flagpole with flag, stone garden walls, front entry lights, wreaths & stones. And an adorable little child hanging on a "swing" from the large tree -- did you spot it? Left side above the small, red maple tree. Also, the house is white - which always has extra color to it -- but this time, I kept it basically white. I didn't want it to create confusion with too many colors.
I also chose to add the cast shadows on the home and walkway to add a bit of contrast to the white. I always thought that cast shadows from trees & leaves gave a very comforting feeling. Hence the name of this one, "Welcome Home"
