pink saturday :: paintings

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is currently in my living room. I liked it right away the moment I saw it. It looks serene and very relaxing. I, however requested the painter to add more flowers to add a happier tone. He painted more PINK orchids. :D Most of the time, the usual comment from guests would be - "that looks really inviting. perfect place for a picnic." Even I sometimes wish that we're actually there . Me sitting under the tree, reading a book or crocheting something, while the kids are running around. Bliss!

To match that painting, I have these on the other side of the wall.

They are not actually paintings but cross stitched pattern of house facades with PINK flowers. To me, they looked like paintings. I bought this set because I couldn't afford to buy facade/house paintings. Now, why is the other one sitting on the table, you may ask.

Well, actually there are four of them. I requested my cousin (who won in a country fair in Iowa for a cross stitch project she did) to help me. Turned out, she finished all three pieces in a flash! They were so pretty that I had them framed right away. I could not hang the third piece yet because the fourth piece, that was supposed to be my share is unfortunately still not yet framed until now. :(

Can you see specks of PINK flowers there?

This last piece is my first painting acquisition. Got it on installment when I was still a young employee, years before I got married. It now hangs perfectly in a wall leading to the kitchen.

Beautiful painting Bette. I sure wish my backyard looks like that LoL Pero ok na rin ang park na ganyan kaganda. A nice place if you want to be alone or hang out with friends.

These three are cross-stitched? I like the window treatment done on the one hanging in the far left. The one with an arched.

You seem to have a fascination for doors . . . or just building exteriors? :-)Kasi pati yung painting by Gapas (love the old-feel of the building. seems like it has a story to tell).
