Back Door Architecture oil painting

The last few days have been filled with priorities other than painting. Although I have begun a new miniature, it is not yet completed, and I decided to post a painting out of my personal collection. This one was painted in Los Angeles, California, 1972 when I was signing under an earlier name.

On my first visit to California, I was young, shy, and without transportation during the day. As I gazed out the window, I spied a garage apartment across the courtyard. The stillness and quiet inspired me to break out my oil paints and capture the Los Angeles back door.

  1. Nita... I remember this one... and I do like it very much. It is reminiscent in style to Dean Mitchell's work. He's a definite favourite of mine... so this one goes right to the top of the class... (IMhumbleO) :-)

  2. Love this V1, keep forgetting that I am V2 . . . Ha! Also love your Dalmations.


Let me hear from you!
