In the House

Today I've stayed home waiting for people to come and measure windows upstairs for new blinds and also to have a new ceiling fan hung in the gameroom to replace the old one that died. So after actually cleaning house abit, I headed to the art room.
Nathalie is hosting a House ATC Swap over on Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group.
I dirtied the one up here..for Barb...what do you think? Can't change it back, btw. I think it's fine.
Do you think this one with the chimney is too busy? On the back I wrote "Come home, come home, Ye who are weary, come home; Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling; Calling, O sinner, come home".... I love that old traditional hymn. I grew up Baptist and I feel very sure they still sing it. I don't hear it so much in the Methodist church. This one now has a sun, Nathalie! Okay...here it is revised per your suggestion to add a bird, Nathalie. The bird was so obvious...how did I miss that? I LOVE it now... I must copy these at Kinko's before I send them off.
So these will go in the mail to Nathalie tomorrow. Please leave any suggestions for making one better!

Linda -

I like them all! I do not think that one is too busy. I would maybe add a little ink to the flower petals on the roof?? The one you called "simple" - That could be a path or a river where the boy is walking-- if you want to make it a river, add a toy boat floating along beside him -- he could be pulling it with a string.

Linda,
I love them all, especially Love Lifted Me. I love them when they are chock full of texture and interest.

I love those old songs too. On a hill, far away, stood an old rugged cross.....

Man, you are certainly one that brings back memories for me. We must never meet because our families would never see us again. We would talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk.

Well, you get the picture....

Hugs!
