"Bolivian Houses"

An acrylic painting. This painting shows four identical boxy white houses, each on its own hill.  Their doors and windows are arranged so as to resemble little faces looking out in surprise. Squarish blue and gold splotches on the hills reference farmland, and the sky is a subtle blend of golden tones, with broad horizontal strokes resembling layers of cloud.  The painting seems at once primitive and well crafted, with simplified shapes and masterful color and brush handling.
