"The Knowles' Place"steemCreated with Sketch.

Painted from life just north of Cottonwood, Arizona, in 1983. This was a beautiful tree in full springtime glory. I used to know what type of tree this was, but I forgot! I'll think of it later.


”The Knowles' Place” 20"x24" (#351) oil on masonite panel
by Lee Gordon Seebach

I'm lucky I wasn't killed painting this. (I'm being a bit overly dramatic.) I was set up with my French easel right next to a busy highway across from this house with cars and semis roaring by me. Probably not the brightest thing I've done in my life, but we artists are little crazy when it comes to painting something we just HAVE to capture on canvas.

Thank you @tonyr It was a gorgeous scene...too good to pass up!

Stunning. I love how "weighted" the house appears even with the light color. Has a presence to it. Thank you for sharing.

😀 @cityslicker I painted it a long, long time ago. I remember it as though it were yesterday, yet it was 35 years ago. Time flies.

very life like painting i had to thought for a moment that it was a art or a photograph

@starboye I like to put that into my paintings: the dynamic tension created when it looks natural yet is a painting. That fascinates me. It's magical.
