The Outhouse & The Rural Idyll

The Outhouse - oil on canvas - 36"x28" - sold
Private Collection, South Africa

I began this large painting en plein air (outdoors and on location) sometime during the summer months.
This ruin of an Outhouse is found just up the road from where I live. It's located in the back garden of a previous subject and painting I made entitled, 'Nilan's Ruin'.
That painting, which I loved, has found it's way into a very special collection in New York City!

Over the months since beginning this painting I returned to work on it both on site and in studio.
A few weeks ago I put the finishing touches to this canvas. All that is left now is to varnish this painting and get it ready to display!
