These are some more of my recent paintings. I did these three for a juried exhibition on Martha's Vineyard about tree houses. I was going to wait until notification to post these, but that's still a ways off and I couldn't wait, so here they are. I'm so impatient.

BRUCE! I LOVE these! These have a storybook quality to them. Different from your other work. I love the idea, too! Beautiful composition and colors! Two thumbs up for sure!

thanks Ana, I think that the first two definitely have that storybook feel to them and I'm glad that you preceived them as so. The last one, I'm not too sure on...it lacks something. I'm happy with the background on it, though.

Oh yes, the laundry definitely captures my imagination. The staircase too, remind me of the Harry Potter movie with the moving staircase. The title of the second one is very witty, and true to the image.

I almost left out the staicase in the final painting and i'm glad that I caught it before it was too late! Yeah, I think that the laundry kind of ties it all together.
