"Two New Trees" - SOLD

Click Here to Bid (will begin Sunday, 9/6/09, 8PM, pst)

Unfortunately the only thinner I could find here in the small town of Schluchsee was Mineral Spirits, odor and all. Fortunately I am only painting outside, so it tends to just fly away on the wind. It was fairly windy when I painted this, again on top of the hill behind my husband's parent's house. That's the top of the their house you see barely poking through the trees. It is 400 years old. We live on one side, and their 4 horses live on the other.

Your landscapes are beautiful. 4 horses! very fun :-)
glad you're getting to paint some of the stunning landscape while your there.


Yes, these last two works are delightful. I never tire of studying your brushstrokes. Thank you for this travelogue...looks already like a grand adventure. jb

I remember that about Germany when we were there 40 years ago... big old farmhouses with the barn at one end and the home at the other. We were told that the heat put off by the animals helps keep the whole building warm. I never could figure out if the smell carried from one end of the building to another.
Delightful painting, Carol.
