Two new gems

"Lilac House, Alameda", acrylic on wood, 8" x 8"

"Purple House, Alameda", acrylic on wood, 6" x 8"

Here are two new ones in my "Architectural Gems" series, small acrylic paintings on wood panels.  I love painting these beautiful Victorians with their elegant proportions and lovely, lacy details.  They were built at the turn of the century when craftsman took real pride in their work.  It's exciting to see the amazing array of creative paint colors in Alameda, where homeowners really respect and maintain their architectural heritage.
