Not having a clear idea of where I was headed with this piece, I let it evolve on it's own. When I do that, it takes A LOT longer…but I usually get a unique story. I was trying to make a house into a crown on top of my head, but it just wouldn't go there! Guess I'm not regal enough. So, final product, I'm snuggling with a baby house on a quilt of grass. I do like my sleep.
It's a self portrait in that I have a love affair with little houses and have several illustrations where these same houses make a cameo. It also represents my creative self. The colorful houses are my ideas. They are my homes filled with family, love, nostalgia, and personal things…vessels of creative energy.
