His Boyhood Home

"His Boyhood Home"
oils, 24 x 36, by Valorie Snyder.
This painting depicts the Patron's childhood home, in Amish country, Pennsylvania.
I composed the farmhouse looming high on the canvas to create the feeling of a child's eye view.
I had a lot of fun painting the glowing light on the bricks and the reflected colors in the shadow of the barn, to create a dreamlike, nostalgic memory.
