Cottage Home 5 x 7
SOLD – Sue Grilli Studio


I love that saying ” Home is where the heart is”.  It’s not the 4 walls of a house, it’s the memories of the people and events that have occurred over the years that make it a “home”.

I thought I might share a few of the special paintings where I have helped people express the love of all the memories created in their homes.

These are what I have been working on this week for my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, I just love creating these unique pieces of art. Even though I haven’t been posting every day, I’ve been a busy little bee in the studio!

    What a fun painting – and inviting little house! I get why it’s sold (even if it wasn’t to the owner). You’ve really captured the charm, warmth and energy of this historic, cared-for homestead.

    30 paintings in 30 days….wow! You must be a busy bee for sure! I completely agree that it’s the memories and the life that is lived in the home that matters most. I know if I had my dream home (a little tiny cottage/shack in the woods) it would be filled with so much love. I don’t need a statement house…just a home. <3

      Lulu- it depends on the size and complexity of the subject. Lots of times I work on more than one painting at a time so I’m working in stages. Thanks for your kind comments!

    I could move in right now. Love it. This cottage looks well loved. You’ve captured the spirit so well.

    Your painting is simply DELIGHTFUL! The colors and textured look was captivating to me. I really enjoy the purple windows and all of the greenery around the home. Looking forward to your upcoming posts.
