Home


This is where I spent my summers growing up, and what I think of as home. That is my sister and me drawing and dreaming on the lawn. Whenever I'm stressed out, I think about being here and it always makes everything better.

The tree that I am leaning against was over 100 years old and had nearly been split in half by lightening before I was born. Cement was poured in the hole for support, but the tree around the cement rotted away long ago. For as long as I can remember there has been a large cement branch jutting out from one side of the tree. I left that part out of the painting for aesthetic reasons :) Anyway, that poor old tree could not make it through another harsh Pennsylvania winter and fell last December. It was truly legendary, and I cannot imagine home without it.

Wow Brittney! What a beautiful illustration, from the gorgeous tree and the girls in the foreground to the awesome exagerated framework on the house to the background scenery. Nice detail and great style! Love everything about it!

Beautiful, just beautiful. Looks as if you are channeling the golden age of Disney animation.

My family lived in a house in which the new owners decided to cut down a two-hundred year old tree because...I don't know why. My opinion, they should have been jailed.
