A House Among the Trees

“It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.”
– Winston Churchill

A House Among the Trees – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Ink

I painted this from a photo by Rozzi (Ros) at WetCanvas.  Ros lives in Southwest Australia, but I don’t know where this picture was taken.  It was on the waterfront somewhere.  It was fun!

    Oh! What a beautiful house! I would like to live there among the trees. And such a fun and mysterious kind of house. I really love how every bit is filled with vibrant color.

    (As a side note, did you get my email about the crossroads mashup print? My email has been weird lately. Arrgh.)
