little houses















I love houses. All kinds. I had hopes of becoming an architect, but my high school counselor advised against it because of my poor math grades, my least favorite subject. Well, I don't need any math at all to design my little houses. These are probably more fun and less stressful than the big kind anyway.









The thing that made these so much fun to work on was my watercolor crayons and charcoal pencils. I don't know if these close-ups will allow you to see the detail but I am really happy with the effect.




Speaking of houses, consider supporting Habitat for Humanity with me so that everyone can have a decent home!

Mary - I LOVE these little homes!!! Are you going to sell them somewhere? I think I need one- I love my little painting I bought at Its about time when you did the show there. Keep up the wonderful creative work!!! Loved seeing you last week and visiting.

I'll take one of each and then I can have a whole neighborhood on my wall. You need to make lots of them for the Quaint Old Market in October. Do you have these in your etsy store or whatever you call it? As your business advisor, I think you should!
