'To me this painting is so eerily intriguing and I find myself completely absorbed every time I sit and look at it. The realistic depiction of this bleak looking house and the small details such as the dent in the driver’s door give this piece an almost haunting atmosphere. And yet, the way the light illuminates the scene has something that is both warm and intimate about it. This piece is so multi-layered and for me is the absolute highlight of the collection’
