Heat In the Afternoon



This is a row house in Pennsylvania, looking lurid with shades drawn against the glare of a hot summer afternoon. When I saw it, with those shades and curtains drawn, I imagined something illicit going on inside. I painted this from a b&w photo I took, but the heat of the afternoon and the way things were all closed up, suggested these colors to me. It was my way of expressing the scene. This painting is done in watercolor on Arches paper, 11 x 15 inches. It's framed to 16 x 22 inches, in a gold metal frame. Image c Lynda Lehmann.
