Vashon Farmhouse SOLD

Painted from a photograph I took of a farmhouse on Vashon.  In the photograph there was only a green lawn and the dark wall of house and trees with a straight horizon between the two.  To transform the photograph into a painting I broke up the straight horizon by dropping some of the trees on the right into the middle ground.  Then I added a foreground- just a suggestion of grass and brush and shadow.  The foreground shadow adds depth to the composition and turns the flat lawn into a pathway into the painting.
