I lost my light about halfway into this painting and had to finish it up at home but that was ok because I could paint this house from memory. If I wanted to roll back time I could add in the ancient valley oak, the orchard with neon orange persimmons, the vegetable garden off to the right trimmed with roses, the red barn or the glass jar of chocolate chip cookies sitting in the kitchen window. It has changed a lot over the years but it will always be grandma’s to me.
