Progressive, Innovative, and Eco-friendly Aesthetics

Ask any child to draw a house and you'll find the classic gabled roof. Despite the variety of houses they've seen, engrained in our consciousness is the triangular roof and straightforward facade. Here are two examples-- George Washington's house at Valley Forge, PA, and the other a Presbyterian church in Old Scotland, AL. Divided by geography, function, materials, and about 50 years, they nevertheless retain the same ideal form. Don't be surprised if both wind up as the subject of my next two paintings.
