"The Retreat"

The Gallery asked me to do some miniature paintings and this is the first 6" x 6" in a series that I will post on my blog. I pass by this area often on my way to some of my favorite painting spots, however this time something caught my eye. I drove passed it but decided to go back and turned right into a private driveway to get a vantage point. As I drove further in to find a place to turn around I saw this beautiful sight. The dark fir trees formed a perfect frame to the sunlit house further emphasizing the quality of the light. It was bathed in so much light it appeared almost as an apparition.
