More Cookie Cutter House Artwork

Little Pink Houses 72

This first painting, Little Pink Houses, was the first piece I finished for this project.  I have posted the image before but never wrote anything about the work and there is a good reason for that.  Often, it takes time before I realize why I made something.  When I first finished this painting, I thought it stood for suburbia, something I was not really familiar with until recently.  Well it does stand for suburbia, but not the suburbia of today where the HOA oversees your life (you can read my thoughts on this topic in my post No Pink Flamingos).  This is the suburbia of the past, when you could enjoy your yard, hang you clothes out to dry, and do the other types of activities that make home ownership a pleasure.

The work above, Ghosts of Neighborhoods Past, is about neighborhoods that have seen better days. Unfortunately, this is my old neighborhood.
