The Sugar Shack Series Continues...
..The Family Business 16" x 20" O/C
Yes, as I thought it would, the series of sugar shacks/houses continues. The "sugaring off"is in full swing. It is always a special time when someone suggests visiting the sugar bush to watch and taste some of the many maple products that are produced there.
This piece was painted on a larger than usual canvas. Usually in this type of weather, this size would be a ideal 'larger size'. Most larger canvases become unwieldy in the wind or snowy weather. In the colder temperatures, this is a large canvas to cover with oil paint. Not to mention the loss of light beginning earlier in the afternoon ...The days are shorter !
This painting was executed with the usual two blues, two reds, two yellow and titanium white.
' til next...
