This month the Melange Team Challenge is "Home". I have many of mixed media pieces that explore the idea of houses and homes. I am facinated by the houses people build for themselves and how they personalize them. I feel like a sociologist when I look at peoples homes because they all tell a story.
I picked this home to be in the challenge because I don't think I've put it on my blog before. I looked! This is a house I would love to live in. I looks like it would have interesting windows and lots of nooks and crannies and the trees could possibly be from outer space.
I used an old paper bag to draw the house on because I love brown paper and the front garden is made with japanese paper. It's all mounted on canvas and painted with acrylics.
Check out the links to the other melange team members! You will be amazed at the talent in this team!!
