~vintage oil paintings~

Ever since I saw this home
I have been on the hunt for some vintage oil paintings! I especially love portraits, they tell such a story.

This one is so simple and I love that, love the muted colors!


I fell in love with this one,

don't remember where I found it.


Isn't this whole room gorgeous?

He's quite handsome, don't you think?!

This is not totally my style but
I still thought it was beautiful!
So, just sitting here dreaming of when
I'll get one and where I'll put it.....
xoxo

I have been on the hunt myself, ever since I saw one that Ms. Dunesberry (Curious Sofa) had in her home. She wrote about it in her blog and I was hooked. As a painter myself, I can paint alomst anything, except people...I am not a portrait painter by any means. Tami E.

Hi Melanie,

You mentioned in a comment to me that you had a question, just want to be sure you received my e-mail response. If you are in the market for a large portrait, the large lady in my photo is available. Good luck with your hunt!
