Sometimes we refer to a previous artist to express the feeling we get from a work of art. It doesn't nean one looks like the other, it only means there is a relation between the two.
Edward Hoppper, this time, is who would I would mention. Because the house's first floor, hidden by the crops in the foreground. Because the quiet stolid presence of the lighthouse.
I really like the strong colors of the crops, making the soft white buildings nevertheless float about the picture. I say nevewrtheless, because erect towers are always a symbol of power and wisdom.

15 Dec 2012 3:12am

@Arr Dy: Thank you for your exceedingly thoughtful comment. It is very much appreciated. Hopper's "The Lighthouse at Two Lights" is a wonderful painting. Lighthouses seem to have an almost universal appeal.

Doug Hickok from Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Wonderful soft light and color.
