The Red Steps

The Red Steps Acrylic Painting

The Red Steps - 14" x 11"

My children and I walked by this house many times in the summer, on the way to a near-by playground. Actually, it is part of a row of townhouses. I imagine it must be fairly old, but I always admire how well-kept it is. The shutters, the siding, the flower pots, the garden and, of course, the red steps all looking their best in the hot afternoon sun.

Too often I see character houses such as these with development signs out front, soon to be demolished. If you see a strange woman rushing around the neighbourhood taking photos of old houses, it’s probably just me.

  1. Hello Maxine! I very much admire your paintings – they are lovely creations. I grew up in a little hamlet called Tomahawk in Alberta and we have Wolodko’s here. I was wondering if you were related.

    Cheers to painting and creating!

    • Hi Kerri. I’m glad you like my work. Yes, my husband and I are originally from Alberta and his parents grew up in Tomahawk! Do you still live in Alberta?

  2. Yes! I am just South living down the Whitby Hall Road (just North of Drayon Valley and South of Tomahawk) – What a small world. I am the art teacher at the local public school FMHS – but just started a leave for the current semester. I am amazed… thought it would be kind of silly asking about your name, should know better – there is no such thing as silly questions.
