that is some pretty beautiful inspiration :)
Oooh--guitar-playing video!! We need video!
What beautiful houses...is this your neighbourhood? And yes I agree with Belinda..how about a YouTube Video of your playing the guitar.
Daisies: Wish I could be inspired every day by living in one of these!Belinda: Ooo that's an embarrassing thought. I was just complaining to Carl yesterday that my teacher has us doing all these boring exercises and theory BUT NO TUNES YET. I WANT TUNES. But I decided that I waited THIS long so I'll do his bidding for the next 8 weeks and THEN .... tunes. Then I can take on the world by YouTube! :)Melody: This is the west side Vancouver neighbourhood where I take Pilates. $1 million isn't in my price range yet but after I become a YouTube star then maybe... :)
I remember having Vancouver layovers and I so enjoyed the ride from the airport to downtown where we stayed. We passed through some terrific neighborhoods with homes just like your photographs.
What a lovely house. I can see why it would inspire you.
Cynthia: These houses are close to Granville Street, the route from airport to city, so you''re very observant.Jan: I'd love to be inspired from the inside, too!
I don't know why this only NOW occured to me, but I know someone who lives in a house kinda like that on the west side! hmmm, I think what they really need is an Andrea Pratt house portrait. I think I should go to work on them...
I have a theory that people are building houses to look like your paintings. No? Ah well.
OK, now I totally see where your inspiration for painting those lovely houses comes from. And that guitar is beautiful!
What a terrific house. Love that style. (Most of our neighborhoods here are NOT so cute... Rare, actually).Ah, to have the leisure time to indulge in musical pursuits! someday. Garden is first though!
Yes it's sad to think what happened to our sensitivity to and investment in quality of building and craft. I wonder what it was like when your home surrounded you with this beauty and creativity. Wish we could all live in one of these, and that value was still placed on individuality and craftsmanship.Love the closeup of the beautiful guitar neck!
When I was a little boy in Kitsilano we lived in a house very much like the one you pictured here. It was not quite so cutsified in those hard times, however.
Charming houses. So unlike what we see here in the Southwest. Thanks for the peek.And keep those calluses building. That's one situation where thick skin comes in handy.;-D
Love these houses! So much character and details. a.
Well, they sure knock spots off the modern fad for concrete hideosities!And hold off the youtube til I get my sound card sorted, y'hear?
What a great house! Are you painting it now? Just about my first criterion for judging house loveliness is: house must be taller than it is wide. I see you agree. :)
