Ma Maison – 8X10 Acrylic on Canvas Panels

Bienvenue!  Here’s my latest project of my home done on 8×10 canvas panels.  I really enjoyed doing these paintings as they were smaller and faster to complete.  I also really enjoyed focusing in on the details, especially in the piece with the workspace, kitchenette, dining room area.  That was actually the first piece I did.

I can’t figure out how to cover it up nicely. The wall showcases some of my photography as well as a few pieces from others of their photography/drawings and a poster from a concert.  Yeah that couch turns into a bed for anyone needing to crash.

Well, hope you enjoyed a tour of my home in a painted version.  This collection of five may grow in the future, not sure.  Maybe I’ll do something else, then come back and paint another room.  Until then, enjoy the paintings!
