Paint From Your Heart

This painting is titled "Snow Bound" and it's now on display at ArtSquare in Leesburg, VA for the December 2012 sale and exhibit.  This house is down the road from me, and near my rural home.  It's called the Hessian House, because Hessian soldiers camped here during the Revolutionary War.  I walk my dog past this house every day, and I'm mesmerized by the many angles, the deep shadows, the decay, and those gnarly trees.  There were obviously many additions made as new families came in and out and growing needs were met.  There's also something very mysterious about the home site.  I'm painting from my heart here....
