Party at 555 Pine

Lockport Pink House Kath Schifano Kathy PaintingDuring John Polechetti's birthday party, the sun was setting even with the cupola on his home 'The Pink House' in Lockport, while the party guests celebrated on the lawn.

Carl pointed out the yellow glow on the white surface & the camera froze a moment of evening  light. This back corner of the house captures the spectacular architecture of original dentils & brackets; although it is not a 'portrait' it is tribute to the character of the architecture, its solid construction & its current caretakers.

  1. The finished picture is gorgeous! I’ve been watching it evolve (it *has* been a long winter). It does seem to capture a very special moment. I hope to see it one last time in person before it finds a new home.

  2. what a gorgeous picture. I see this house from right next door all the time, but you have captured it beautifully.

  3. I'd love a picture of my house. I'm right next-door, at 575 Pine Street.

    1. Hi Jenn, I was just blocking in my outdoor art travel schedule and realized you had asked for a painting of your home over a year ago. If you are still interested I have some studio time available before the weather breaks and my outdoor schedule starts again. Of course, I could do a plein air as well, call me if you are still interested and we can decide on the phone.
