Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This was my first Craftsy class and it inspired me to go through my old photos and try to paint my old homeplace. The underpainting was done in acrylic and when I couldn't control it any longer I switched to oil paints with better results. It took a lot of patience to get the house correct and I edited much stuff out of the scene. The rest of the painting was done rather quickly. The class was very good and I hope started me painting with better techniques.

My grandparents had an old home out in the country that I loved so much. Your painting touched my heart. I feel like I could just walk up to the front door, go inside, and live in your painting.
