House Hunting (and a new Painting!)

We are looking for a new house. I can't help but get emotionally attached to certain houses we see... maybe it's the nesting instinct or just my normal emotionally reactive personality. I think "I can see us raising our family here!" and then all rational thought goes out the window. Good thing Jay can keep a level head. 

New York Brownstone Watercolour Portrait

It's pretty much my dream to have a brownstone in New York. This is a recently finished commission, but I was drooling with jealousy the whole time! Everything, even the doors, is so beautiful and cool. ​

Ahhh, sigh of envy. ​

​On the plus side, this was a pleasure to paint, and I'm so happy with it. Happily, the owner agreed to let me add it to my portfolio, so I can share it with all of you! 

Now, back to painting flowers... I've moved on to apple blossoms.​

The Makins House!

Hello, adorable and sunshiny house! I was excited to paint this one, because it's actually three houses all connected. It looks like brownstones in New York or something, but it's all in Hamilton! (Hamilton seriously has some awesome architecture). If you are interested in having a house portrait done, you can check out my pricing guidelines or my Etsy listing. ​

...And It Will Make an Even Bigger Bang!

really don't feel like rushing things lately. I know all the other bloggers posted happy new years resolution posts on New Years Day, and I was super inspired, yet I felt absolutely no urge to make resolutions or post anything. Ha! What! I know... it's like, "Who is this girl? Amanda must have been abducted by aliens." 

My Grandparent's House

I painted this watercolour for my uncle as part of our Secret Santa gift exchange, it's a recreation of the house that my mom's whole family grew up in, in Toronto. Some of my earliest memories are of Christmas dinners in this house, and rolling down these little hills in my snowsuit.
