Postcard Art


I did a piece from one of my reference photos. This was taken at a private home that is restored to be like it was originally. The owners have a lot of antiques throughout the house and we were allowed access to both the inside and the outside. Beautiful house and wonderfully kind owners. I may use this card in a swap I will be in about a month from now.

Hi Jeanne - This is super...nice detail on the wagon and the inside items. I like your idea for the postcards...that sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm up in Maine with Michelle visiting our sister, Tina. We were out plein air painting in the heat this morning. Can't post from here, but I can check in...funny but I can only post comments on some of the blogs I've visited..strange!

Very nice little piece. I would have loved to join you- I love going thru homes, old or otherwise! and I love antiques, etc. I'm very "nostalgic" (if you can't tell by my wanting to capture those farms from my childhood). I also like plants- alot! So I really like this little work of art.Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you'll return. :-)

Very nice. You did a great job on it. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog too. I had no idea what had happened to Chima. Thanks for the heads up. I am really glad she is gone now! We are big fans of Amazing Race and Survivor as well. Glad to hear you like reality tv too.
