Painting #3

Here’s my third Get Your Paint On painting! Our assignment was to choose colors from several objects in our lives and incorporate those colors into a painting. I’ve been wanting to do a house portrait of our first (and current) home for a while now, and this assignment was the perfect motivation.

Rather than literally represent our house I tried to illustrate the character and feel of our home through color. In a way I wanted this piece to portray my future memories of our first home. The details might be a little fuzzy, but a strong sense of warmth, comfort, and coziness comes through loud and clear. (I hope!)

      Thanks! I just used a teeny tiny paintbrush to paint lots of little circles. :)

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
