Commission finished – Ellen’s House 8″ x 10″

I had so much fun doing this house.  The windows and shutters were my favorite part.   I haven’t heard from Ellen yet.  I hope she likes it.  🙂

About Thomas J. Watson

American businessman Thomas J. Watson built IBM into a Fortune 500 company. He was born in rural New York in 1874. He sold sewing machines, musical instruments, and cash registers before becoming president of the Computing-Tabulating-Recording company, which merged with IBM in 1924. His paternalistic business style was a model for later Japanese management, and his motto, “THINK,” became his company’s slogan. Under his leadership, IBM funded the first computers. He died in 1956.

    It’s so warm and inviting it’s exactly what we all want to feel when we look at a home.
