White Building

24" x 24" Oil on Wood SOLD

This building is not far from where I live. I would always see it across the sugar cane fields in the late afternoons when my wife and I would take our son for walks. Something about the way the light hit the building kept getting my attention, so I finally decided to paint it.
This was done in two sittings from direct observation. On the second sitting there were some late afternoon thunderclouds rolling in which is typical in South Louisiana. I did some minor touch-ups in the studio because I could only paint for about an hour and a half before it would be too dark.
