Side Entrance - Small ACEO Painting, Original Art Painting of Old New England House

Side Entrance
3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
acrylic on watercolor paper

A  little view of the side entrance of an old house that makes up part of the Boxford Town Library. I did a similar painting last year and was asked for one from a local friend. The older one had a few perspective issues that I wanted to address, so I decided to do a re-do instead of giving her the older one.

I enjoy painting old homes and buildings - especially the doorways which seem to lend so much of the character to a building. Sometimes just a little piece of the house - a doorway, an architectural detail - can make for a more interesting painting than including the entire building.

This is Day 1  of a new 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge from Leslie Saeta. I am going to try to keep up this month (this will be my third time entering the challenge!) but it will be a super busy month, so we will see how many paintings I actually complete.
