White building with light on it

It may not look like much to you, but this building, made from wood and painted with layers of white paint, kept me busy for hours yesterday.

I thought about Andrew Wyeth and the many weathered buildings he painted in his long lifetime.

I thought about the person whose tender care caused the garden around the church to thrive.

I thought about the shadow on the white building. How dark? As dark as what?

A white building with light on it. It bears more thinking.

White buildings in the sunshine are really grabbers! I remember the first Mitch Baird painting I saw in person was a white house in a field of green--he managed to make get all those shadows (like the ones you're blogging about here) just right. I hope you paint a white building in the sun--you seem to have the right reverence for them.
