This one is one I started it is a canvas board 12x15 and when I had extra paint or etc. I would just put it on this board..I just keep layering and then I pick up a photo I had done in b/w and had hand tinted it plus I added details to this old house a rail and etc.. It finally found a home on this board.. I think I like it..You can not see all the colors and texture.. So the green house finally found a home..
It is nice when it all comes together.. This board I never really gave it much thought. The colors were nice and then when I picked up the photo I had done.. WALA it was perfect...Or to me it was.. I do love using my own photos and yes I used the original on this one..
So welcome to my green house and does it look a little scary.. NO...It is just an old home that needed new paint and blue skies..The texture around I just threw in for you to want to reach out and touch..Open the door, come on in and enjoy the company.. If you click you can feel the texture..HaHa
Thank you for stopping by to visit and please do drop in again soon.. You never know we paint another house or two... Bring your brush.
May you always dream in color

Very cool Katelen! You're right; by clicking the photo - it's almost like being able to touch it! Fantastic!

Hi Katelen, thanks for stopping by my blog.
It's nice to meet you. I love the old green house - great texture. I live in a 160yr old house.

Sorry to hear your mother is not well, it is wonderful you are able to care for her, and enjoy each other.

Blessings to you both,
