Original ACEO watercolor - old Victorian house porch.

"The Old Victorian" original ACEO watercolor (+ some ink). 2.5x3.5". Listed on eBay:

"I tend to get 'caught up in all the details' when doing my art. I deliberately chose a looser style with this, and love that I did. The house is lived in an historic with wonderful Victorian features. Shown in the 'lace' work on the door and side windows. A 'side' door to the house, but accented with a lovely garden and topped off with an American flag.
The garden is lit with sunlight, which in turn is reflected in the windows and door glass.

Although some of my brush strokes give fine details, I chose to add a little bit of ink work, particularly to emphasize the iron lace scroll work and to add character'. Some nice steps make this entry seem really inviting. I love old houses, and this one is a joy!"
