I got a late start yesterday morning and decided to stay close to home. This house is on my regular way to church, and it had been calling to me as I walked past it over the last weeks. It's nice to be able to paint close to home, so I took a whole camp chair with me as well as my regular backpack (luxury) and walked the two blocks to paint. The light moved around on me a good bit, since I was running into lunchtime by the time I finished, but I enjoyed painting one of the grander homes in our neighborhood. I also love the corner ones that slant expansively out to the corner instead of facing one street or the other.
