Art Houses

The Documented Life Prompt this week was houses.  I love houses. Two themes I seem to repeat are birds and houses.

A few months ago I picked up a Nashville Arts Calendar. It is full of very photos of a huge variety of art work.  These houses are made things that appeared on the calendar during the month of February. If you look closely you'll probably recognize some of the painting in the houses.

The grass/yard is cut from a Ballard's catalog.. It's actually a display of rugs that I tinted with green paint. I like how they give the illusion of hills and flats.

I love that I can make so much art using recycled things.

  1. There are not letters big enough to express how much I LOVE this piece!!! The house to the right (with the sea least that's what I think he looks like) is my favorite, I think...he's just awesome! And I really, really, REALLY love the carpet/grass. It is SO COOL!!! I'm going to have to search through some catalogs so I can, I mean...borrow...your idea! I REALLY like it!!! :)

  2. Love your fab page and the mounds of grass look superb. Annette x

    1. The grass was a happy accident. I picked that because it was a green color. Then I decided to paint over it and that made all the difference.

  3. Wonderful Boo and I am sure Vincent would like it too! By the way - I love houses too.
