Final House Portrait – Kincaid Residence

I had so much fun doing this portrait of the Kincaid home.  Jackie and Carl were wonderful to work with, too.  My hubby and step-son slept in on Sunday, so I got to finish it.

I have moved on to something really different.  Remember the horse on her back?  Think color!  😀

About Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr

French author Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr is remembered primarily for his epigram “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” He is also known for his autobiographical romances, including the popular Genevieve. He was born in 1808 in Paris. As editor of Le Figaro and, later, Les Guepes, he became widely quoted for his sharp witticisms. An avid horticulturist, he named more than one new flower, and when he retired to Nice, he popularized the tradition of selling cut flowers. He died in 1890.

    That’s one beautiful house! The owners will be thrilled. I want to move in. Do they have an extra bedroom?
