    1. It IS so classic, isn’t it Lux? I’ve always been attracted to those black and white drawings in classic books (a lot of children’s literature too) – and drawing these homes from photos to make them look like such book illustrations… 🙂 All actual homes from people who have asked me to draw their portraits… 🙂 Thank you for stopping in here and letting me know you were here! 🙂 So glad you enjoy them too!


  1. Pam, God has blessed you with an extraordinary gift!! I LOVED looking at these sketches of people’s homes! What a great idea and the perfect housewarming gift for someone moving into their first home. I just love it


    1. Thanks, Karen! It constantly amazes me to see what happens on the paper when I draw. I didn’t do much for so many years of being busy at work etc, and now it really seems like God is enhancing my ability somehow. I find it comes easiest when I have a photo or some picture to go by (rather than trying to create totally by imagination)… It’s been a gift to be able to create some of these for so many occasions — I think especially of one I did for a woman’s church group who wanted to give it to a newly widowed member as a remembrance of her time in her family home with her husband etc. I love when it has some special meaning – like another one when the woman told me she had been searching everywhere for someone to draw her beloved home before they had to move states away. All those stories of our hearts and lives, that’s what I love to illustrate. So glad these bless you today! 🙂 I’ll probably link up a few more of these “galleries’ but hope you enjoy browsing here at your leisure! If you or someone you know are ever looking for something along these lines, just let me know…
