Isn't this one cute? I love that it is the vine covered, white picket fence, cottage look. The last two houses have been this wonderful color that doesn’t show up in my computer. I tried using a different pigment this time to see if my scanner or camera could capture the manganese pigment better then the cobalt. Nope. Just doesn’t scan. It is a pale blue/green light grayed turquoisy celery kind of color. Well there you go I can’t make it the right color in words either.

Your neighbors have some really cute houses! I miss houses without bars on all the doors and windows, LOL. I miss California. It will be nice to come home for a bit this summer. Can't wait to see you my friend.

Beautiful page! I love the way that you've captured the neighboring home. The picket fence is especially nice. Did you use masking fluid to do it?

These houses you're painting are just lovely - your neighbours should be delighted. And I should think there are great sales opportunities if you want them!

Adorable house! so pretty. This is a nice series that you are painting, they will all look really good hung next to each other as a running series, your neighbourhood through your eyes.
(do the neighbours know you are painting their houses i bet if they knew they would be thrilled)

Hi Pat. What gorgeous houses you paint! You have a good collection right now. Maybe you could exhibit them somewhere in the neighbourhood.
You might end up working on commission. They are lovely.
