Liberty Street

Look down Liberty Street hill in S. Berwick, Maine and you'll see the classic colonial houses built during the seventeen hundreds. Nicely tended flower gardens adorn the curb lots during the summer. Oak and maple trees cast their cool shadows across your path.
A basic lesson in landscape painting is dividing the picture plane into the foreground, middle and background and using aerial perspective ... warm colors advance and cool colors recede.

Absolutely gorgeous, Dennis. I'd love to see those old colonial homes.
