The Pink House

"The Pink House" ~ Painting in Oil on Canvas ~
(canvas on canvas collage)
I was trying to get a 3D effect with canvas on canvas....
It is of a wonderful pink Victorian House in McIntosh, Florida. McIntosh is just up the road about 20 miles. This is where the 1890s Festival is held every October in the historic district.

Not the Hotline

I am seriously considering going back in time ~
this is a wonderful cobalt blue old rotary telephone
I found online....... who knew they worked with today's modular stuff ? And if the electricity goes out...guess what...they still work :) Besides I love the old ringers too. Just amazing how many restored ones are out there...of course there are reproduction ones too......even with push buttons........However, I am kinda fond of this one circa 1941. (original Kellogg Swithchboard Co. Bakelite & Chrome)
