amid pine trees and unkempt grass. The painting’s titular
building is rendered in a stark white, despite its obvious age
and derelict condition. The roof is a fading red tin and the
chimney, red brick. Geisel uses light-blue paint and shades
of pale pink and tan to provide contrast and to highlight the
surprisingly clear white quality of the abandoned building’s
exterior. Around the center structure, Geisel has painted the
foliage at once crisp and whimsical; both realistic and impres-sionistic,
using a palette knife to apply her choice of thick oil
paints. Trees flanking the old house are represented with fine
lines and detail while a sidewalk running along the left side of
the composition maintaining a definitive edge.
