Oracle House, Portsmouth, NH

12x12" acrylic
The Oracle House is a Portsmouth landmark - built in 1702 for a sea captain.  I love the way this house looks from the road when you stand directly in front of it.  The symmetry of the house and fence, along with the brick wall, and the bright morning sunlight, make this scene beautiful.  (12x12 acrylic)  This one was also picked up by Kennedy Gallery in Portsmouth.

Market Square, Portsmouth, NH

I had so much fun painting this scene. The loved how the bright sun brought out the reds in the architecture, illuminated the spring leaves and the little girl's dress and cast strong shadows everywhere. (12x16 acrylic)
