The Victorian House ~DSFDF challenge

The Victorian House
original oil painting, 6 x 8 inch, unframed

This is the latest challenge from Karin Jurick's Different Strokes from Different Folks site. I hate doing architecture so it was a real challenge for me....although I love old Victorians. With this challenge, I tried to simplify as much as I could and since it has been so cold here in Minnesota, I thought smoke coming from the chimney very appropriate.

I especially love the smoke, it warms up a cold day a viewer (like I) is having. Very nice!

Erika, Living in Minnesota and having all the cold weather that we have had this winter, I just could not resist. Thanks. MaryAnn

What a good idea, a fire in the fireplace, and thus, people and personality. I don't think anyone else came up with that!
