Very homey feeling to this beautiful work of art!.........L.

Thank you very much Shirley!

New Philadelphia, OH - United States

Doug, we have an old abandoned house similar to this one in the woods over here. When the grand kids were younger, the wife and I would take them out to visit "the haunted house". You can imagine the fun we had with that one.....more gold brother....L/V

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thanks Dave! I have had many people tell me this house reminded them of one they used to live near. I was definitely going for the "gold" with this one—The early-evening sundown sort, I mean! LOL…

Kingston, WA - United States

Wonderful! Very rich, and beautifully composed. What a great puzzle this would make!

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thanks for your great comment Ronda! It would probably take me longer to complete this picture—as a puzzle—than it took me to paint? ((-: LOL…

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!!!

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thank you so much for the heartfelt, detailed comment, Lois! I very much appreciate your time and support!

Beautiful image....makes me want to visit! LF

Doug Kreuger replied:

Thanks for stopping by, Tamara! You are welcome back any time—even if it's only to visit a painting and not the real place. (-:

Monee, IL - United States

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.

Gorgeous painting, Doug.

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.
