The Old House
This is a batik painting of Malcolm and Dawn's traditional cedar shake Nova Scotian house which is situated across the road from my house in Chester, Nova Scotia.
One April, I took a photograph of the house before the horse chestnut tree leaves were out. I could see the house clearly. Once summer arrives, the side of the house is always hidden from view by the fully-leafed tree.
I like the silhouette shadows of the branches against the white cedar shake siding.
