Winter is coming upon us fast, so I decided to start painting some winter scenes , I love old houses so when I have a chance to see one with some character, I always take pictures , this one is in deep Maryland Washington county , I have a son who lives in the area and I get to explore the back roads of Maryland at times.
Small paintings like this are a great way to start collecting scenes with different seasons,or different styles ,I never get tired to look at my own collection of art from other artists. email me if you are interested ,
