House Behind a House, Sellersville

oil on paper

This painting is not for sale yet. I'll be exhibiting it at the Gettysburg Festival in mid June.

This is a two-morning study of two homes in Sellersville, birthplace of the painter Walter Emerson Baum. While I was painting, a man stopped by to tell me that he bought his home from Walter Baum. In fact, I do believe Mr. Baum painted this exact scene (minus the shed), but so far I haven't found the image online.

Here is a painting of Baum's that I especially like:

The Narrows  1936
