Crooked Little House

Spent a couple of days at Harris Beach, Oregon. I went for a walk early one morning and did a this sketch. I took a lot of artistic liberties with this one, at least as far as the house is concerned...I am sure the owner would love to be the only one on the bluff and with his own private stairs to the beach. Instead his neighbor has the stairs and his house is in the second row back, it is also much larger than it is here, though. The landscape is pretty accurate and I enjoyed painting it, that's the important part.

I can just imagine what a grand dwelling this must be, Tami ... and to have that beach to his own!!! Neat job on this --- and on the scene itself ....what a joy it must have been to be there painting!

It's okay to use artistic license and build a "dream home!" What a lovely walk it must've been and you're doing SO WELL with the ocean/rocks/sand paintings lately!! I admire your white ocean sprays -- those are HARD!!

Accuracy counts for nothing in art, in my opinion (well, maybe in portraits...) The house is right because that's the way you painted it! This is lovely.

I love this Tami! You've created so much serenity and that is something that always makes a painting work...to let be able to let your viewer "experience" something! I feel like I want to be there!
