New painting - Weathered!

This one was tough - a lot of close-up bark.  Evil I tell you - evil!  I took the reference photo in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia.  The house and landscaping were lovely.  I titled it 'weathered' because of the bark. I think it once started out as a clematis vine many years ago.  I was drawn to the purple window, purple flower combo. 

Harper's Ferry is a really nice spot.  Beautiful scenery - 2 rivers come together and lots of hiking and SHOPPING!  I spent a couple days there and took beau coup photos.  I'm sure more paintings will come from them,

I am having a tough time getting a good photo of this one color wise.  I will have to wait for a sunny day around here to give it another go.  I tried a float frame for the first time.  I think they really add some punch to a canvas. 

Thanks for looking!

This is a superb painting, Lynne--it was worth the work (easy for me to say, right?). I clicked on it so that I could see the detail--impressive. I also like the palette and the flowing composition of this one--very well-done.
