I love original artwork. It adds to a room, and sometimes tells a story. This is a piece I painted after seeing a wonderful, rundown house in Savannah. Those windows spoke to me of times gone by when attention to detail was given to homes.
What I want to point out is what a huge difference it makes to have a background that pulls the tones of the painting, versus just hanging it on a plain wall. Now, I agree that a lot of my artwork hangs on plain, neutral walls. But sometimes, as in this simple architectural detail, it just needs more!
