Oh boy! I find myself simply wanting to explore this grand old place! What a shame to run a rail right by this beautiful home. Well done, Celeste!

I recognized this right away! Always fun to try and work out what someone else did:) Great results.

A really different subject for you. You do keep surprising me. I love it too. Hopper is so good and you did good by him.

You need a place like this; I imagine you painting in every room and hanging out on the balcony--waving to the passengers on the train.

I have a huge book on Hopper.
His painting was a little larger than yours, his was 24" x 29". This particular painting is the first one they share with the reader and your copy is excellent.
It looks like you enjoyed painting it.

This must have been interesting to do. Hopper often has stark contrasts and you have that here. Beautifully done. Looser than Hopper I think and I like that. Feels British to me, didn't know why at first. Then I saw that the roof on the right looks like Mary Poppins' hat!
