South Addison, Maine, Jenny Purington Sirone’s house, 2011 (second version)

Oil stick on rag board. About 10″x14.” Rather than painting over a photograph, this is painting I did from life. I hope to do more “plein aire” work. I had a hard time getting a purple using only the three primary colors I had.

The subject is Jenny Purington Sirone’s house in South Addison, Maine, as viewed from Alan and Brenda Jepson’s cottage, where we were vacationing. Jenny Purington Sirone kept sheep on Nash Island. Here’s link to a story about Jenny. http://www.lighthousedigest.com/digest/StoryPage.cfm?StoryKey=921.
