Cupola in Drizzle by Darren Maurer


6" x 8"
This cupola caught my eye last weekend. We were at a local pumpkin patch with our daughters and of course it was drizzling rain off and on while we hunted our pumpkins. There was an older barn on the farm with a tin roof and three cupolas along the peak. I liked the way they looked against the grey sky and the wet reflective quality of the roof. It was a perfect opportunity to use a very limited palette of color. Once every one-hundred years I finish a painting and I really, really, like it. This one comes close to that. This is painting 109 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold

I loved this image when I saw it in person! Looks just as good on canvas.

The limited palette was a great choice. I can see why you like this one so much. It has a Wyeth feel to it. This might be my new favorite
