Happy Week's End


Robert Addison, realist 
I grew up in a neighborhood like this in a narrow Victorian house that sat alone on a hill in the corner of an "L" shaped street. From its windows and front porch you could see the neighborhood looking much like this in two directions.

I would love to paint this way. I am practicing!
Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Hi Annie,
    I have always loved Victorian homes. I have a friend that lives in one right below the famous Hollywood sign on Beachwood Drive. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I haven't seen anything yet that you couldn't paint. The only thing I can paint is a flat wall.

  4. Hi Annie! We often visit our friends who live in Oxnard (just 1/2 hour away) and they have many Victorian homes there as well as really interesting Craftsman homes. I often thought it would be fun to renovate one. Good to hear you are keeping busy reading and painting! (((Hugz)))

  6. We had neighborhoods like that too in parts of the Bronx. Not in my part though. Mine was a neighborhood but no Victorian houses to be seen. Wish I could live there right now. I find my area wanting and depressing. Annie I believe you can paint anything you put your mind too. By the way, I love your new header. Have a blessed day ahead dear friend. Hugs
