Veronica’s house

October 25th, 2009 Lauren Edmond No comments

Welcome to Veronica’s house, “Spring water”.

Actually, Spring Water is the home of Veonica and Andrey, and their dog Gracie.

It’s a log cabin they recently built in North Carolina. In building their deck, Veronica refused to remove a tree that was “in the way” and instead opted to build the deck around the tree, thereby honoring the tree and making her home even more unique. It was inspiring! So when she asked me if she could commission a painting of her home, the answer was YES!

Veronica and I met online about 10 years ago. And although we live in different parts of the country, we continue to stay in touch. Using the internet, I was able to send her sketches of her painting in progress, and we both thought it would be fun to share this on the blog. So here is the painting-in-progress, and there will be more posts as it progresses. Meanwhile, here are the first 3 versions of “Spring Water: Veronica’s house” ….
