The Blue House

My mom used to make and sell little wood houses that she painted. She would create whole villages with country stores, bake shops and ice cream parlors just to name a few. She has since retired her house making and had several, blank, wooden houses left over. I decided to take a few and see what I could do with them. This is the result.
This house is a sculptural piece and all of the sides and the roof have been altered and collaged. You can view more pics of this piece at my Etsy shop.


  1. Great job! It's nice when you can continue a tradition in your own way. My mother and grandmother used to make quilts. Years later, I ended up making several large scale decorative soft sculptures in college... which basically means big useless quilts. My mom saw my projects and said, "Look... okay. I guess. Why this crooked? Why the stitches not so good? No one ever buy this. You cannot use. One time, everything fall apart. Look... okay. I guess."

    Ha ha ha!

    Has your mom saw your intrepretation yet? And hopefully she'll like your's better than my mom liked mine! :-)

  2. It's great that you have a sense of humor about it Andrew! :)

    My mom will tell me if she doesn't like something or make no comment at all. She has seen this house and told me that she liked it. So I have momma's approval on this one. :)

  3. Tis is beautiful! I love it! I'm going to visit your etsy shop right now!

  4. Thank you Niki. I will have more houses in mid January.
