home again

I have a feeling you may be seeing a more of these 'happy homes' over the next few days. I am really loving painting these! I got some comments that said they have a 'beachy' feel. Moving to the coast is my hearts desire, so maybe that is coming through in my work... Either way, home is the sweetest spot. Illustrating that is pretty sweet too! :)

  1. They're so fun--I love painted houses!!

  2. Thanks Diane :)
    I try so hard to be "serious" and do "real art" but then color and whimsy take over and I am back to cute again! Oh well, if ya can't beat 'em join 'em right?

  3. Those are so cute. You are a very talented Lady. Thank you for sharing your work

  4. Hey Pen Pal-
    Been a while since I visited the blog and posted. . .and its in my ball park to send you some snail mail. . .yeah, I know! Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow. . .and the next day, and the next day! What's worse is I've been prograstinating about my summer reading and writing-I have 15 pages of writing do on June 24th and I have barely started. Its SUMMER. . .I don't want to sit in a library! I'd rather sit in my craft room and make stuff. Oh-guess what, I have my own Etsy shop now and I'm partnering up with a local craft friend for a events planning and party design business-Paper Moments! Fun! I'll get something in the mail to you soon!

  5. Oops. . .forgot to mention in my really long last comment. . .I LOVE your bright watercolor houses! Sell those in your Etsy shop! They'll get snatched up!!
