Hebb House
Hebb House

This Thursday was not a regularly scheduled paint-out, but the weather was promised to be so fine – sunny with low humidity and not too warm – that I could not pass it up. I went out about 8am and drove around a bit before deciding that I wanted to paint at the Living Farm Heritage Museum in Howard County. It was lovely: so quiet, with a nice breeze and no bugs. (I guess they were all off somewhere else harassing some other poor artist.) I’ve wanted to paint the Hebb House for a while and decided today was the day. I knew I needed to keep it real simple, though, using the approach that Terri Ford taught me and remembering to eschew detail for broader, bolder strokes of color. I used a smaller surface, therefore (6” x 10”), to help me avoid fiddling. I have to admit I’m quite happy with the painting I did and with the fact that (for once) I met my goals!
