multiple listing service


Thanks to Kirsty & Phil and Caroline's hunt for a new home in breathtaking Cornwall (I think I live in the wrong country), this week's Illustration Friday theme, 'multiple', ties nicely into my house obsession. (The houses are 100% Canadian, mind you.) It also doesn't hurt that I finished my latest house portrait (below) yesterday, and just in time to include in this mosaic.

Love the new yellow house - definitely my favourite to date. I like the extra details you've included.

This latest house painting is my favorite of all the houses! You have such a wonderful collection of these paintings, and each one has its own great personality. I especially like the yellow and the curtains in the upstairs window... it makes me feel warm and breezy:>

I also have a thing for houses and just adore your house paintings. They exude love and appreciation for the sweetness of the houses. They bring the houses alive in all their warmth and charm. They make my heart jump with joy.

They are all fab houses, but I'd make the red one my home.

These are great and I like how you grouped them together. You have captured the character of each house, not mere four walls.

I'll take the red one please. :-)

Gorgeous! The whole lot of them.

They look good enough to eat! They should all be listed with Hansel & Gretel Realty.

A collage of your wondrous houses. What could be better? Delightful to peruse. They really, really should go into a book, you know.

I second the idea for the poster. I thought of it as soon as I saw the grouping. I love the houses too, 38 times! Jeez, I wish I got that many posts. You are a pro.
We lived in a yellow house because my father was color blind and yellow was one of the few colors he could really see.

I think it's one of the most beautiful you've ever done (just kidding, of course...but I do love it!)
