" A house is who you are, not who you ought to be."- Jill Robinson
HOME PERSONALITY Whether we like it or not the personalities of our homes are accurate barometer that reflect, through our surroundings - where we have been, whats's going on in our lives, and who we are. While having lots of money certainly helps us express ourselves through our surroundings, creating a warm, imaginative and artistic home that reflects our own personality doesn't have to begin by hiring a decorator or pulling out our credit cards or checkbook. Today, no matter where you live, look upon your home with creative eyes and inventive minds. Decorating with a simple but well done painting will do the trick. Walk through your window and offer thanks for the lovely view, garden, roof that safely enclose you and yours. Be grateful for the home you have even if you don't own an original paintings by Vincent Van Gogh or Georgia O'Keeffe.
"VIEW FROM A BATHROOM WINDOW" This oil painting is 16" x 20" and painted on canvas. This is one of my early realistic oil paintings which I painted in the 90's. The colors are muted, a diversion from my vibrant colors. As always, I love to decorate our small cottage home with my own paintings. This painting is about a bathroom window looking out into a lovely view of the garden with cascading water fountain. It's lovely to look at and the one who has this kind of view is lucky indeed. Many years ago, I gave this painting to a lovely bride. I am her god-mother. This painting was my wedding gift for her and the groom. I am sure it had added personality to their first home together.
