Ha hA I love that house. I'll pass by it again on my next fit of The Hat.

Laurie said...

Wow, what a cool house! I'm having the best time with this!

LSaeta said...

I love this photo. The colors are fantastic and the up close and personal shot works really well. I saved the photo ...

LSaeta,

I'm flattered that you "saved" my image, but please keep in mind that it is my own work. If you print it or reproduce this image, you need to give me some compensation :)


Glad you all like today's image! Laurie, what a cool idea.

LSaeta said...

So you are making a claim to the painting, I assume? Tee hee.

ben wideman said...

Ha ha, nope, not the painting, just the photo.

Mister Earl said...

This is cool. It looks very patriotic, as the roof looks a bit blue.

I'm gonna stay outta this smackdown. I gotta enuf stuff in my food bowl already.

Besides, it wouldn't be fair if a dog got in the "competition."

Sarah Jane said...

There aren't enough cool houses like this. That little decorative paint detail just kills me!

Petrea said...

Pretty pretty pretty. Sarah Jane, there are SOOOOOOOO many cool houses like this!

Okay, many not enough, but so many! I love this town.

How long does the smackdown continue? Do we play every day? What are the rules? I have no idea.

ben wideman said...

I guess that's up to Miss Laurie!

Hey Leslie! (painter to painter) Screw the photogs! Go down to the house and paint it plenairish. It's on Villa at El Molino (south side)or just snap a photo of it yourself and paint that! HAH!

Anybody can be a photog.

And I hold all power today because it's my birthday. Resistance is futile.
