A commissioned piece. I never did a cottage, Usually it is either trees or women. It is often with commissions like these that I come to study things and structures I normally do not draw or paint.
Longing for spring makes me post this one. I closely studied Camille Pisarro and saw leaves, blossom transcending into the negative space around it very gradually.
This one is special. Sarah Rose, a pastellist and dear colleague from the U.S. and living in Utah, once took this picture on horseback.
