It’s a bit weird to go from living in a place where you have too much stuff on the walls to a place where you don’t have nearly enough, but that seems to be our present situation. As a result, I’ve got a number of art-making projects in the works and I’m trying my best to finish at least one a week over the next month or so. The first one I tackled was painting a small house portrait. I had seen these amazing watercolors by Rebekka Seale, each one a unique portrait of someone’s home (you can check her out on Etsy, here). Being an artsy person, I thought I would try my hand at doing the same.
Mine didn’t come out nearly as cute as hers are, but I think it’s a fairly good representation of our house, though I did take a bit of artistic license so that it wouldn’t look weird.
I’d eventually like to scan it, clean it up a bit (I made a few oopsies), and frame a printed version of the original, but for now this is looking nice in our foyer. Now I just have to convince my husband to get around to making his own house portrait, as he wants to do a little something that shows how Up-like our house is (it’s crammed between two big buildings).
