Great work!

Doug Kreuger replied:

Nicole, Thank you for visiting my gallery and leaving so many pleasant comments—truly appreciated!

Brookeville, MD - United States

Doug this is so beautiful ... really tugs at the heartstrings. The gingerbread details in the eaves, the capstone on the chimney, the detailing over the front door all speak to a home that was dearly loved and held much hope and joy at one time. The addition of the chicken and her chicks is a wonderful and loving touch. This is magic!!!!!! l/a and tweeted!!!

Thank you my friends! I am overwhelmed by all of your warm and endearing comments. I realize that this often overlooked painting (although it's one of my own personal favorites) does not show well at a small size. The obscurity of this withering cottage is meant to suggest "not all that glitters is gold" —Hence the title "Primrose Path". I invite you to take a closer look at the deteriorated roof and the rickety porch to get a semblance for what I am trying to express.

Iola, WI - United States

Another gorgeous, exceptional and masterfully done piece of beautiful artwork with your oil painting prowess! I am so totally in awe of how you can paint something in oils, that actually looks better than 90 per cent of all photographs I have seen. I am totally in awe of your skills an talents as a true artist, Doug! Don't mean to "BLOW your horn too loudly" but your works exemplify perfection of sights and scenes viewed by so many people! I love this fine and outstanding piece of brilliant and masterfully done art work! fave and vote

Doug Kreuger replied:

Randy, as always, your comments are so personal and thoughtfully written, not only for me, but for all the artists' work you acknowledge. In this scene, I tried to capture that magical time of day, just before dusk, when sun paints a landscape in a rich, glowing, golden tones of color.

Dent, MN - United States

Doug, this is an incredibly beautiful painting!! It is such a charming and beautiful scene and so detailed, right down to the little ducks along the path. It makes me want to find an old place like this and move in and fix it up. Fave, voted, and my choice this evening for Pay it Forward in the Wisconsin Flowers and Scenery group.

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thanks so much for you glowing comment and support. For some reason, the image presented here doesn't do the original justice. As one of my personal favorites, it fails to gain the attention many of my other paintings do. Perhaps, it's just too small to be fully appreciated here.

Primrose Path


Doug Kreuger


Painting - Oil On Canvas


It's early evening and the sun is gilding this landscape with alluring tones of Golden color. A single stone path winds its way among Evening Primroses and toward an abandoned home in its declining years. I call it "Primrose Path".

I find that not all Primrose Paths lead to calamity, great loss, or misfortune. Instead, I see a reminiscent beauty in the layers of peeling paint, weathering boards and rusting metal, the natural progression of the past assimilating with the present.

When I see a home and its surrounding grounds in this state of disrepair, I ponder their earlier years of sheltering their former occupants. It's easy for me to visualize the property as it perhaps once was: neatly manicured and with "All Its Ducks in a Row".
