Texas house in the heights

"Texas house in the Heights"

I loved the typical style of houses when I lived in Houston, Texas. A lot of these old cute houses were being replaced by the big townhouses, but there were still a lot of inspiring ones. Especially in the Heights; I drove through the streets and wanted to paint every house I saw. Luckily I made a ton of pictures.

Recently I found a stack of war pictures that my husband collects. In between al the soldier and battlefield ones was this one. A serene interior with magical light. It left me wondering about the huge story behind a picture like this, taken in time of war.

model dog

"Model dog"
8x8 inch (20x20 cm)
oil on stretched canvas
This dog is THE best dog to have. Certainly as a painter. She pulls the sweetest faces. Or the funniest. Or is in a hilarious pose. She is an uncommon breed. She has a slight resemblence to fantasy characters you see in movies. She can even model for a painting.
My one year old Chion, Nikki.

I've been watching this room for so long, it is now a familiar place to me where I would feel totally at home.
Often your favorite series can make you relax in the most stressful circumstances :)
