love to come home to

When a request for a commission comes through, I am always amazed at the pride and joy that goes into transforming a house into a home. This 1929 Bungalow came to me and
she promised to post it on her very own blog.

pup charlie provides love in his eyes!  sweet boy!
The owner requested her menagerie, her two cats Bella & Bond and pup Charlie, be added to the front stoop.  How sweet to come home to a place with everlasting love and curb appeal.

This is the photo that I worked from. I love how a home can be a work in progress and to be part of creating an illustration at any given point makes me so thrilled. I hope that Mr. Everlasting, the recipient of this illustration will be equally as thrilled!

This photo is more straightforward, but there is something about seeing a home from the inside out or another angle that intrigues me.  What do you love to come home to?

Dogs & cats getting along? Would you look at that? Why can't everything be like a beautiful drawing?
This one is a lovely rendering!

I love to return home finding it all picked up and organized. I try to never leave with things in disarray. Who wants to come home to a counter full of dishes? This little bungalow is charming.

I absolutely LOVE this illustration. Bungalows are some of my favorite style houses. And this one looks like a "home".
I love to come home to my husband, and the music we share together.

Your illustration really adds a warmth to that home. Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Wonderful my friend! I love the cats and dog on the front porch, probably where they spend many lazy days.

Have a golden weekend! xoxo

Oops I forgot to add- It doesn't matter where home is as long as it is to Gary and Kelly. xoxo

I have a feeling Charlie is going to make it to a piece of watercolour paper! Beautiful painting of the home facade...you are so talented and prolific! Makes me feel I could walk right through the front door of that home :)

Loving the wedding illustrations...nice job! The bride must be thrilled- how original of you both.

Best,
Michelle

What a wonderful rendering!
Coming home to our dog Cheddar, our garden in the summer and the fieldstone fireplace in the winter make it Home Sweet Home for sure!

Perfect illustration! What a cute little house to come home to!

I love to come home to my kids and have them throw their arms around me like I've been gone for weeks (even though I just ran to the grocery store for 20 minutes!).

What a beautiful house! There's a place in my heart that's always reserved for smaller, older homes!

Thanks so much for your kind mention on Eddie Ross. It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely daughter Amelia.

Your blog is wonderful, though I've never posted a comment on it before. (Shame on me!) I loved the the wedding sketches -- and, of course, anything about homes...and family...and design...and the arts...and on and on....

Your gifted fingers make everything beautiful and special!

Best wishes,
Evy

Thank you so much, again, Patricia for this amazing illustration. I adore it and smile every morning as I pass it to go out the front door.

I would love to come home to Charlie. :-) He looks like my Maggie (who I do love to come home to) so naturally I am in love.
