House On The Hill

Oil/linen panel
Plein air

This one can also be titled Sick Painting because I was quite ill that day. Started the new year off with a terrible cold. It's been over four years since I've had a cold, but everyone around me had it. I was cooped up for days and wanted to get out of the apartment for a while. It's a little more colorful than usual and I believe the drugs in this case might be the reason. Maybe I should take Claritin before I paint! Another Marian Bear Park painting. Can't get enough of that area. The house on the hill caught my eye. The light was coming from behind, creating the purple-ish shadowed hill in the foreground. I was surprised how purple it was and how vivid the other colors were that morning.
