Farm Houses

Another cloudy day here, but that's okey-dokey. If the last week had been sunny and gorgeous, I might never had been inspired to head off in this direction with my stitch work... a direction that I'm really enjoying! (Thank you, grey skies!)


This piece is entitled "Farm Houses", as that's what I see... two white farm houses, one on the left and one on the right.

However someone else might see it differently...


what I see as a red door, part of a porch roof, and a window, (or maybe it's a date stone?) someone else might see as a red house, a garden plot and an out building.


And, what I see as a window, a trellis and a porch roof, someone else might see as a house, a train track and an upside down barn!

Any which way you see it, is the right way in my book. I get a kick when people see different things then what I see. I like different points of view and perspectives. That's part of the joy of art, don't you think!?


"Farm Houses" is now available here in my shop.

(Note: Now Sold)

Love your latest pieces!!

I see a lighthouse, a harbour with a dock and a jetty (landing stage) and a red roof of a fish restaurant!

I understand the weather thing. If it's nice, I'm outside. Crummy weather (like we're having here in CO today) is the perfect excuse to stay inside and create.

LOVE your barns! How clever.....and the color choices are perfect!

Happy crummy day to you!

This is so lovely!!! I am a big fan of Janet Bolton. Your art piece has a bit of her whimsyness, and a lot of your podaji (?) esthetics. Please keep developing these art pieces, I am so in love with them...

You manage to make something look so simple and I know it isn't simple. It takes great skill to produce such a lovely piece.

Hey Harriet said...

Yes that is the great joy of art...seeing things differently! Or just seeing things. YOUR things in particular! LOVE this piece Vic!!!

PS - I can't believe how late I am visiting your blog...been a crazy silly kinda week. I'm sure you know the type! :D

First, I love the shots of red. LOVE. But the little world you've created just makes me want to open the door, or peer in the window and see what's inside.

Very nice indeed!
