Painting Dads House

I often use old photo's as reference for a painting. So much history and richness.
This is the house my Dad grew up in in Concord Massachusetts.
































Here is my interpretation.







































I wish I could show him....
I just found out from my fathers brother that this house cost $8000 in 1939 when
my Dad was 7. It's the only house they ever owned. There was a porch on the front side
at one point.
