"Dacher"


8x8 oil on canvas panel

Dacher is german for rooftops. No, I don't speak german... but I have a friend who does. :)

and I just recently discovered a german artist named Edward B. Gordon whose work is incredible. He paints very similarly to Karin Jurick, who is one of my absolute favorites, as well as the host of the blog different strokes from different folks... 

for which "Dacher" was painted.
great challenge. loved this one...

Tracie, your colors are phenomenal, as well as the overall rendition. Thanks for explaining the title too. I personally was not thrilled with this one for my own unartistic efforts!

Thanks ladies! I really enjoyed painting this... it was nice to leave "the beach" for awhile and do something different.
