Connected, German Village Alleyway
Three words encompass this painting — textures, lines, and contemplation. I chose this subject because of the sweeping lines that have created a multitude of diagonals, horizontals, and verticals running to and fro from the utility poles, and to the weathered brick home with it’s large dormer window, and turned back curtain. The window has yet to fully reveal the interior, possibly leaving the viewer to contemplate about the interior, and its inhabitants.
