Home With A View


Here is a new painting. Don't show any real artists...it was just for fun and relaxation. Getting it to a smaller size on the computer caused it to be a bit warped in certain areas, and a bit stretched out in others, and the colors are not as vivid.

I have no clue what I am doing and I don't follow directions very easily. I found a similar picture on an old postcard of the late 1800's. I thought this house was probably a farm house of the 1920's.

Oh, Mrs. Sherman it is lovely. I have tried to paint myself, however all my paintings turn out to be "abstract" LOL

I absolutely adore your blog and check it each morning. You are a dear friend and definitely an inspiration.
Thank you, Amie Ladd

What a lovely painting! Thanks for sharing yet another talent with us, Mrs. Sherman!

Don't underestimate your talent, there is a tranquility and love that shines out from that picture. The house looks so pretty and homey and the horizon really draws your eye. Could I please copy it onto the hard-drive on my computer?

Mrs. Sherman, you are a lady of many talents! I admire the way you’ve created the illusion of depth of field and the choice of colors too. There's an art course by DVD advertised on the net called "the Gluck Method" at http://thegluckmethod.com. The website offers a free online class. It looks very good. When I'm home again, I want to give it a try. I've been teaching myself to draw in my spare time, it's a lot of fun (however I don't have much time for it presently). ….I've always got something to say haven't I?? Sorry 'bout that. It's just, I like to know about everything and take pleasure in many things! I love Homeliving Helper too. Always exciting when you ladies post something new!

I love it.

It's shaped a bit like my house. My house was built in 1910. :)

I think it's beautiful! Just the kind of place I'd like to live (OK, maybe a little bigger to fit all my kids).

Lydia,
The painting is beautiful! You have so many lovely talents. If you could put that house anywhere, where would you put it?

You are welcome to copy it. I don't have this painting any longer. It was an anniversary gift for my daughter and her husband. He said he wanted a piece of property ;-) He can always pretend like Mary Poppins and jump into the picture, I spose.

To the lady who wrote about housekeeping, we can put some tips on here in an article that might help. Your comment wouldn't stick, for some reason, but will try to address it soon.

Mrs. Sherman, that's a wonderful painting. It speaks to me, and I think that's the most important thing about creating a work of art. The perspective is exciting, the light is beautiful. The tall poplar like trees and their shadows are particularly nice and add a bold touch that just makes the painting. It reminds me of some of the work of "Grandma" Moses.

And yes, I'll admit, I'm a "real" artist! Your daughter and son-in-law are lucky to have such a personal and meaningful gift!

It wasn't an attempt so much of creating art, as of trying to give my son in law some land.
