IN THE GALLERY ROOM:  American Heritage Home Portraits for all seasons

Ever fall in love with the homes and architecture from Cape Cod to  Williamsburg to Charleston?  Inspired by the quintessential American Artists, I’ve designed these modern day home  portraits (drawn from photos in local neighborhoods)  as an ode to the lasting charm of Currier & Ives and Norman Rockwell.   Modern decor or Early American… I think these homes speak warmth to us all…

Little White House in Ada

Tea in The Cottage Garden on Bronson Lane

I created this one from a photo of an actual, tiny 1852 Victorian  in a nearby town, situated aside an old stone church founded in 1870.  (You can see my drawing of that quaint country church here:  Churches .)  The storybook feel of it’s dollhouse size captured me, inspiring me to create a spring in bloom  scene around it, adding touches of pink cast from the blossoms across the door window… These cafe chairs were outside in the photo, which led to the tea table in the garden…

This is for all the cottage lovers out there…but I could also see it brightening up a little girl’s room with a bit of story on the walls!  🙂

Heirloom House Autumn

“The Fall Umbrella Tree at Heirloom House Cottage”

(This scan does not fully pick up the vibrant pumpkin orange of the trees and leaves on this one… less yellow and much deeper in true Autumn color in person)

This photo of my original drawing shows the tree and leaves are really more of a golden pumpkin color than the scan picked up, as in true Autumn splendor…  🙂

Saugatuck Hall

” Out for a Summer Breeze  Promenade”

 Ode to Norman Rockwell

A quaint village hall built in the 1800’s, still heading the corner in the charming lakeside town of Saugatuck, MI

I wanted to make this hearken to the Norman Rockwell  ’40’s or  ’50’s vintage, when little girls and women often wore hats and dresses, and a sailor on leave might be out for a stroll… 🙂

Diane's Yellow Brick on Elmwood

New American Homestead:  “Dappled Morn”

Ode to Currier & Ives

“The house slept, dreaming in the sunshine…”  ~ D.E. Stevenson

Just now completed, this one is my favorite in this collection.   I experimented with graphite pencil on this to try and capture the wonder feel of early morning light as it dapples across the lawns… the way it brings a sense of BLESSING Presence on the neighborhood and all who walk there (even the bunny scampering in the quiet stillness) …  The resulting softness of the light stirs me the way it does when I’m actually walking in this charming local neighborhood… (does it for you?  🙂  )  And I think, the beginning of a fresh new style of “painting light” with black and white that I want to explore!

I’ve been looking for an elegant but subtle frame for this drawing for some time and just found a perfect one today at Hobby Lobby…  Thought you’d enjoy this photo (my drawing is not inside the glass yet here, but you can see how the lip would look around it…)  🙂  I think I want this frame for my “Dappled Morn” (up top) too!
