Illustration Friday: Fearless


The person that moves in here might enjoy living on the edge and could be considered fearless.
Or they could just be a bit crazy ;)

My submission for Illustration Friday's "Fearless" theme is a quickie called "hilltop house".

I have been away and now i am back. Cocoon would have been a better word for me but I had to miss last weeks theme so i was certainly challenged by this word as it does not come to mind when you think of a house or home. There are a few buildings in Topanga that remind me of this one :D

I think it's a great solution! Reminds me of some of the houses I saw in CA when I visited.

Tony LaRocca said...

I think the people who built it are pretty darn fearless too! Great work as always!

Kathleen Rietz said...

Awesome! I agree...reminds me of CA...

Amalia K said...

Fearless, indeed. I would probably hold my breath the whole time if I lived in a house like that! Hahaha... some imagination, Val! ;0)

Hhahahahahahahahaha!! PERFECT!
As soon as your house popped up on my screen, I thought, "Oh my gawd, I'm sending you a scan of something."

It's on it's way...you'll see...so funny!

This is way cool, dood. I'm a bit cwazy, so I would love to live on this edge...(as you know..) ;o)

Janet said...

Amanda Dilworth said...

Puts a whole new spin on location, location, location! I don't know why Val, but your works seem to make me comment in 3's. ^.^

In the land of fairies the skies are pink and the houses are staked on the higher hills always with a cat at the top window.

Hey Val! Welcome back! This is so great! I can picture the FEARLESS family that lives here. Going off to work and school would be a breeze, but getting back home would be a challenge. You were certainly up to the challenge my friend! Excellent work. Thanks for the smile :o)

Love it! Perfect!

thefridayfrog said...

hee, hee! just perfect, vallie! love the color and composition of this one. but i'd live there. and i'd want the raspberry spumoni sky to always be around it. i'd raise wild goats and i'd feed them kitkats. "))

Gai said...

love it. You'd need to be brave to get to the house let alone live in it. Great concept. Amazing really how fearless some people are in the houses and homes being lived in, through choice or circumstance.
