Hi ValGal.
The picture makes me think of marzipan. I like the colors pink and green together like that. I can't think of anything alse to say but : perfect!

Janet said...

Nice, Val! The more I look at it, I can imagine the house is singing!

Alexa Brett said...

Val,

This is a great composition. I love the colors (makes it look so sweet!) The geometry of the elements of the composition add to its whimsical, happy, lovely appearance. It is perfect!

Ooooo ! Trippy ! The driveway looks like a power cord and the house is the lightbulb. Would that be a 'house-light' ?

House on the hill! Beautiful, Val!
Imaginative Artistry!

carla said...

I love your pretty house on the hill at the end of the long winding road.. The soft colors are so gentle and happy, and all the details are perfect - the birds, the smoke from the chimney, the little car, the trees. Your work is so full of delightful imagination:>

The Tart said...

Val girl...when can I MOVE in. I love your house--all of them.

After a big night out we Tarts would love to head home to a cool place like this...I see fuzzy, snuggly blanket/throws to snooze in. Lots of hot chocolate and furry pets to warm a Cheap Tarts heart.

Thanks for the beautiful art, I can IMAGINE going here.

Smooch,
The Tart

frank h said...

Oh, how nice drawing
It is really a dream, imagination...
wonderful!

The Tart said...

Val, I have settled in to your lovely retreat for a light nap!

To all bloggers please drop by anytime, Val leaves the front door unlocked for friendly blog pals, tip toe please---I am snoozing with a cute b&w Tuxedo kitty.

Tanner maybe hungry, if he meows at you...the kitty chow is on the beautiful pale gold granite counter top next to the warm pot of Hot Chocolate, BTW help yourself! Turn on the water from the faucet for Blackie..just a drip, it's OK if he drinks while sitting in the sink...Lyn says he does this all the time.

Have you noticed that the retreat smells like apple pie & cinnamon? I think Val just put a pie in the oven...<: )

I think they are still playing croquet in the backyard, Andrea & Carla are tied. Caroline is in second place and needs a partner. Toni Kelly & Isay are swinging in the hammocks watching the Donna flying a kite! Lyn is resting her feet in the cool creek--long night of dancing!

This place is truly a dream worth imagining!

Val, I have added your to my blogroll without your approval...please drop by to review. Your art work is beautiful and comforting!

Smooch,
The Tart

GoldenOwl said...

Hey... this time I followed a link into your blog from Cheap Tarts... anyway, your piece is great... you could probably get one into a movie scene somplace... roger rabbit, or twilight zone... or anything. Hmmm... wonder if you ever fashioned a Coo-Coo Clock?
See ya next week.

Stephen said...

Janet said...

Val,judging by all of the comments, you picked the right thing for imagination.......everyone has seen something else in this little house.....marzipan,a singing house, light bulb house, a house that's a tube of paint...and you really stirred up Jody's imagination.I asked my son to look and tell me what he saw, and he also said" It's a tube of paint".

Janet said...

Duh!!!I just read the title again..."House Paint". O.K, I'm officially senile.

Isa said...

So, so sweet and beautiful. you have a lot of talent!!

anne said...

wonderful! i just love your style! LOVE it! the colours are so soft, like bubblegum and the lines and colours together make such a soft feeling. like a cottonfield you want to throw yourself into.
you make fantastic stuff!

Lily and Lucy White said...

Lovely, warm and very imaginative! Love it. Lily.

anthony said...

Twisselman said...

Yes, your houses are so inviting. One can only imagine a house as cool as any of yours. I like the message and the take on the paint tube. Very nice.

Paige Keiser said...

Wowee, looks at all these comments! This is so creative, and it almost glistens. I guess some of your secret magic I presume. :0)

Hillitty Kukko said...
