So. You know...I HATE when people start sentences with "So..."... but an update - the paintings at the North River Art In The Barn sold like wildfire. Yay! Which is great because I am headed north to mid-coast Maine for an annual painting trip at the end of next week! VERY EXCITED! Although I will miss everyone at home, it is a week of renewal, relaxing, painting and laughing. All the artists going have been in the business for a long time and have so much to share. And we are remote. I mean... our phones don't work - we have to use the LAND LINE. Good Grief~!
OK, this painting is for the GirlsJustWannaPaint post for May, the topic being: Home. Great topic. HOWEVER..... I have never really had a 'home' that 'fits' me. Fits my heart. I am happy enough that my family fits my heart and my pets fill it up too. But though I am an architecture nut and love furniture, fabric, china, glass and carpets... my own home is not what I would paint. So (here I go again...) I was in this house a while ago and I thought "I could love living here..." and I snapped a couple of photos. The people were waiting for the movers to move out of the country so they didn't mind. The floors, the antiques, the huge sunroom, the 2 stairways... yep... just fit me. And I didn't want this painting to be 'nudgey'... all straight lines and exact perspective. I wanted the 'feel' I got there. A little wonky.... like me.
P.S. if there are typos all over this, my orange cat, Harry, kept leaping up and walking ON the keyboard. I think I got them all. But he would look SO great in this home....
