This is a scene that I sketch or paint every once in a while. Often it finds its way into the background of other pieces i've done as a framed painting on the wall. (including a development painting for the Incredibles I did with Lou Romano - which i'll post when i get to a scanner, but it's in the "art of" book if you have it.)
This composition has some meaning for me as it is based on two separate paintings that my grandmother did when i was child. After many years I had merged both paintings in my mind and thought that there was this one painting. Later, after she past away I discovered that the painting in my mind did not exist but rather it was fragmented into two.
Ever since I've sketched and painted the version I've seen in my mind.
