home sweet home
WIP/work in progress
I finished up this fun window painting this afternoon and had a buddy to try it on for size. ;)
Check it out in person at Lena Rose in Ravenswood in Chicago
This is a commission of a gorgeous rowhouse in the Pullman District in Chicago. This land was built by the man who brought you the most luxurious sleeping cars and the riot that proved unions had influence. There's a tour of the neighborhood this October: Here is the link.
And that's Olive in the porch in her red bandana. Good dog. Stay.

The most elastic of sunlight for this house.
Technically, this could be considered an architectural and/or pet portrait but let's be realistic. This is a garden portrait and it couldn't be any more inviting. I've said before that I feel like homes should be considered living organisms and since gardens are extensions of the home I would think this postulation could be easier to digest in the garden for traditional definitions of life. How magical to watch a thing transform and how magical to sit within the living hedge that exists to it's fullest potential on account of your work. I stand by my lemonade and freeze tag thoughts when working on this one. Gypsy, on the left, probably agrees.
