Thematic: chimneys & houses

A few months ago, I told you all about my love of houses.  Boxy, childlike, minimalistic houses that appear in a variety of mediums - ceramics, fabric, wood and even metal.  I've noticed recently that there are number of those four-sides and a roof images popping up with chimneys...and magical things puffing out of those illustrations and prints.  Here's a small collection of adorable houses with whimsical touches and unique design elements that I've found over the past little while.

Part of the "Home Smoke" series from Spread the Love.  Printed on Neenah Classic linen and matted in white, the whole piece measures 11"x14" with the main print measuring 8"x10".

A digitally colored illustration printed on 200 gram paper with archival inks.  Full print is 8"x9" and image is 7"x8".  I love the doily puffs of chimney smoke!
Signed print with cheerful circles in varying sizes; I love the simplicity of the house that produces such exciting chimney smoke!  Printed on archival matte paper measuring 11"x14" with a white border surrounding the main image.

A more conventional take on the chimney smoke archetype, this piece is not printed but painted...on canvas!  Original acrylic on canvas in warm autumnal tones.  Measures 4"x4" (1.5" deep).

Signed print of an original illustration that is digitally colored, printed on velvet fine art stock in archival inks.  I'm a big fan of ashley g and this piece was what inspired me to follow her work!

Smoke Circles is a digital reproduction of an original illustration. I love the vastness implied by the white space, and all the exciting things that might be happening inside the house.  This print is 5"x7" (often available in other sizes), with the image occupying 4"x6" with a white border.  Signed and dated.
