Small paintings often feel like treasures to me, whether they are done with a realistic hand or one that’s more gestural and impressionistic. It seems within the confines of the limited space magic can unfold.
This 5″x 5″ oil painting reflects a spot along the Delaware in the town of New Hope, Pennsylvania. It’s a charming spot with many historic buildings. Although you can’t see it here there is a tow path and a canal way that was used for transportation years ago. Mules would walk along the canal and pull cargo filled boats from one point to another.
This painting was a spontaneous piece enveloped with swift brushwork and a very loose
interpretation of the architecture and surrounding landscape. The colors are imaginative and capture a piece of the artistic culture that exists in this small town today. Enjoy!

I love your take on architecture. I painted an old school house on a plein air trip this week- it will never (Never) see the light of day!
I hear you! I have paintings I feel the same about. I aim to remind myself of their importance in the overall process. That’s not always easy!
Great answer, I’ll keep the in mind. Enjoy your day!
