Willow Avenue House

We had a rainy day yesterday but I wanted to paint something outdoors. I went exploring in Islip which had some interesting houses. This is 7 x 7 in my Stillman & Birn journal.


  1. Another favorite, Joan. This is truly gorgeous and I find myself studying it to try to learn how you make a piece look so detailed without ruining it (as I tend to do).

  2. What a stately old home, Joan -- beautifully captured in your hand!!!! Ditto the comments above!!! It rained here too! Glad for the water!

  3. There are so many great homes in the Islip area. I lived in East Islip for a number of years before moving to Smithtown. You really make painting look so easy... gorgeous work again!

  4. Lovely old house. You did another great job with it. BTW, I have to say that I hate blogger's new "prove you're not a robot" by having me type in two different words, one of which I can never read. Hmmm, maybe I really am a robot.

  5. Lovely job on this lovely old house. Sorry I haven't been able to visit, sick and busy. We will be at the Nesconset Library from 12 to 2 today. It would be great to see you.

  6. Sherry - Thanks so much!

    Lin - I'll have to roam around Islip a bit more. Thanks!

    Rose - We could have been neighbors. lol Thank you.

    Carol - Thanks. I'm hating that they ask you to prove it too. I can never read the encriptions. lol

    Joan - Sorry you were sick. Hope to see you soon.
