"Red House in Winter" by Lawren Harris
Van Gogh had his “yellow house” and Harris had his “red house”. Lawren did many red house paintings but I think this one is the best. The snow, the trees, the sky, and the shadows all create that great crisp clear winter morning mood. The snow clad tree limbs are a LSH signature move that I love and will copy at some later date. Did I say copy? I meant appropriate. If it ever snows in Vancouver again, I will paint my childhood home. What colour was it? Coincidentally it was yellow then it was red and now it is yellow again. Hmmm.
