PPF - London Inspiration

The blue sky is trying to peek through the grey clouds this early morning.  As I look out the window gazing upon the row of houses behind our home here in our quaint, little town of Colorado, it reminds me of the darling, cozy homes lined up behind the perfect hotel we stayed at in London this past week for our honeymoon.  Ahhh, I do miss London very much so but am reminded of the many things here back home in which I do love and have missed while away.

Things such as my adorable doggie, beautiful sunsets/sunrises over the majestic mountain peaks, my creative corner and of course - our family and friends here.  Where would we be without them?  :)

So, as I continue to settle back in with the normal chores, etc, please do enjoy another one of my many inspired sketches/paintings from our fabulous three week trip to London.


For more wonderful PPF artist, make sure to stop over here.  Happy Friday!


  1. Love your sketch of London houses!! I was born in London and lived there until I was 30. The houses are so different than in the USA aren't they? I now live in Baltimore but miss those tiny backyards. Happy PPF

    1. Thank you! And yes, they are very different! :) I really liked how things were smaller and cozier than what can be found in the US. haha Happy PPF!

  2. Those houses are very elegant and your painting does them proud!
