ever so humble

You know the type, the one that is ever so humble.  The above humble abode welcomes you after a long day.  The path guides you and grounds you.   A patch of earth to work, a table to sit and break bread, a bath tub to bathe a baby and a light to see the love lit from within each night.  It takes a heap of liven to really make a house a home.

I am so impressed by so many homes that come across my path.  I am ever so humbled to capture my vision in an original and personalized art.   Thank you, I am grateful!

And when you pass through the front door you are greeted by a big doggie and the smell of home cooking fills your senses.
Your art is wonderful and the ability you have to connect people with their pets indicates that you are inspired from within your heart.
May we all dwell in a home that is ever so humble.

I always love your home sketches. So warm and inviting, they just make me smile. You can't help but want to walk into each and ever door.

Beautiful. Reminds me of my grandmother's house (that my parents now live in). The shed in the back is too cute.

Adorable. Positively cozy.
There's something about your style that makes whatever you sketch so accessible.

Lovely painting, as usual. This house looks like a home. And a happy one.

If I lived in a free-standing house, and not a condo, I'd have commissioned you long ago.

This is lovely.

I dream of a house just like this one day.

Kathleen said...

Oh, it reminds me a lot of my old house, a house I never fell out of love with. The drawing is lovely.

Just lovely!! You make a one dimensional house "feel" like a home through the love you put in to your art.

It is always such a treat to see your art... and heart!

This is gorgeous Patricia as always! You are so clever! I used one of your beautiful cards you sent me the other day {the one of my mum's blue and white things on her coffee table} and I just had to tell you how nice it was to send a thank you card to one of my friends with your special card!!
