Blauvelt Drive

"Blauvelt Drive" - NFS
9x12 acrylic on canvas board

Here is another home portrait done recently. The photo I was given was of the current early spring season, but I chose to sort of combine Spring & Summer in this. If I had done Summer, the 4 trees in the front would have been filled with leaves - making the house very hard to see. If I had done only Spring, then all the background trees would have been trunks & branches - making all of the scene a mass of brown lines. By blending the seasons, the front 4 trees stand out. 

They are wonderful trees with very rustic branches & tree trunks. I have a close up view of one of the trees & the front door that I plan to paint as a 6x12. That one is not commissioned, so it will be a painting that will be part of my "Entryway Series."

This is such a lovely home, Nancie! You did a great job and I easily see your logic for combining seasons. I'm sure the homeowners are thrilled!
