Cottage Inn at Bethville – 6″ x 12″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

The sun came out for a few minutes this morning, so I was able to photograph my newest paintings.  I had so much fun doing these.  There are many layers of paint and glaze, but the fun came in when I got to add the shadows and highlights.  That’s when they really came to life.  I can’t wait to start the next three.  They’ll be 12″ x 24″.  😀

About William C. Durant

William C. Durant, founder of General Motors, consolidated much of the fledgling American auto industry under one roof. He was born in 1861 in Boston and grew up in Flint, Michigan. His innovative business model was to buy out vendors and acquire competitors. Forced to resign from GM due to this management style, he founded a new company with his race-car driver, Louis Chevrolet. He later regained control of GM but lost everything in the Great Depression. He died in 1947.

    Cottage Inn is my favorite, so far. I really like the colors you chose for it. I like the wobbly steps and the idea of everyones cottage waiting in a row.

      Thanks, Sophia! I have the best collection of books, filled with wonderful quotes. I have been collecting them for years and they are some of my most prized possessions. I love books anyway, but the books with inspirational quotes are my favorites! 🙂
