Two Harbors



This one I originally did as part of my Google Street View State Series. I decided to paint it larger, as the original is only 5" x 7" (and can be found here). This one is 24" x 30", oil on gallery wrapped linen. There are probably 10 or 15 in the State Series I'd like to paint a larger version of, and hopefully I can retain some of the same feeling the originals conveyed.

This painting looks exactly like my grandmothers house in Bowling Green. Do you know her???

Wow, Mr. Guffey, I saw this painting and fell in love with it. The colors are sort of "Hopper in the Suburbs" and your style captures something ethereal. I absolutely adore it.

Great work of oil on canvas. You play pretty well with lights and shadows. I'd love to see next of the series.

This MUST be a photo. Your skills are tremendous! The rendering on the house makes it particularly realistic for me.

Wait, wait, wait. Do you mean Two Harbors, Minnesota? I grew up there and have my poem called Two Harbors, MN on my blog. You should check it out. (And the houses look right.)

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

inkywasfat...yes, Two Harbors, Minnesota. ;) I like your poems. The one entitled Two Harbors is really good.

Bill, be good to chat offline. We're going to re-launch THE ARTWALKER PROJECT in due course (www.artwalker.com) and you may like to contribute. It won some awards in the early days of the net 10 years ago, allowing actual navigation via scenic paintings and drawings.
Hit me at 'alex.blok AT owonder DOT com' and we can dialog. (As can anyone else interested in joining artwalker.com when it relaunches.)
