I got a commission in Chickasaw Gardens recently. They have more Tudor-type homes over there. I was driving along, looking for the number, and I saw this one and thought, "darn it, I want to paint that one, but it can't be the right number already." Then it was. What fun. I love all the ivy.
I'm doing a lot of pretty houses lately and probably need to get out and do something a little grittier, but I also want to get back over to this neighborhood and do some more painting sometime. I really enjoyed this one.
