I painted this little portrait of Fiona and Elsa for my mom for Mother's Day. It was my first experiment using gouache, and I think it turned out pretty cute. I have a long way to go to get comfortable with this new material, but I have a feeling that this is leading somewhere good. Hooray!

In other artsy news, tomorrow is House Love's one year anniversary. Oh my! I think we have to celebrate! Please check back tomorrow for a special giveaway. It will be my way of saying... Holy crap, thank you! I had no idea that my little house portrait project would become what it has. Almost 130 house portraits later, I have a 6 month long wait list and whole new appreciation for what home means to all of us. Check back tomorrow and celebrate 365 days of House Love with me!
