Yellow House - Tuscany
Oil on board - 50 x 40cm (Framed size: 64.5 x 54.5 x 3.5 cm) - $5,500
I walked past this yellow house for several years when making my bronze sculptures at the foundry in Pietrasanta in Italy. It always intrigued me with its forlorn appearance and disintegrating yellow facade, and I knew I would eventually paint it. So typical of older houses all over Italy, they provide me with a never ending supply of lovely subjects. I enjoy simple flat compositions, and the challenge of taking simple elements and making them into satisfying paintings.
