Graveyard Cottage

8x8 oil on canvas

This is the coolest little building in the middle of the graveyard. I pass it several times a day and always think about painting it. It has beautiful windows that aren't emphasized in this painting, so I might have to do another one with a closer view to showcase the windows.

I'm still in search of a very small pallette knife. Either that, or I'm probably going to have to go to a larger size canvas. The knife I have is bent and ends up scraping away paint that I've just put down.

  1. Well Mary, you've managed to make a graveyard look cheerful and pleasant! Yipee! Very nice...I saw some VERY small palette knives at Hobby Lobby and Meiningers (in Denver; they have a website)(I think I spelled it correctly)

  2. Hi Mary,
    You're work is utterly charming. I love the simplicity and graphic quality of your compositions.
