Houses on Hill #3

20" x 24" oil on canvas.
Hopefully this image isn't too soft since it's the only one I still have for this painting.

I always paint in oil 'cause I like the way it looks and feels. Also I like the fact that the colors are the same when they dry as when they're wet.

Acrylics aren't that way. They're slightly darker and the colors are more intense (brighter) when wet. Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing artists who love to work in acrylics. I just don't happen to be one of them.


  1. Beautiful, Dan! Rich, rich, rich. I remember John Asaro saying that "you can use almost any color anywhere as long as the value is right."

  2. I LOVE this painting! your color work in all of these is amaizing.

  3. Oh these are wonderful!! The geometry is so fantastic and quaint and whimsical, it's so great, thank you thank you thank you for painting and sharing this!!!
