Which Painting Do You Like BEST?


Some friends of mine gave me their drafting table.

They have been encouraging me to paint more.

They would not let me pay them for the table !! (grrrr-)



This is their cute house............





And HERE is my "thank you" to them for the drafting table..............

(acrylics on paper)


Except -I wasn't sure if they would like it, so I created a second one........


(watercolors)

Please vote and tell me which one you like the best!!




  • Acrylic Painting (top painting)
  • Watercolor Painting (bottom painting)

Trish, I voted for the acrylic, but love them both. It was more of a close my eyes and pick one vote because both paintings are gorgeous!

Dawn said...

I also voted for the acrylic but love them both-I'd love to get either as a present to hang in my house. What a wonderful idea!

Lindsay - Paint Me A Picture said...

They are so nice! I voted for the acrylic - I loved the brightness of it. Great job.

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

What a beautiful thank you! I know they'll love whichever one you give but personally I like the vibrant colors better.

Their home is so sweet!

I voted for the acrylic too! Love the vibrant colors! What a lovely idea to give as a gift!

Terry said...

Don't make me choose. I like having a summer AND and winter picture.

You did such a great job on both of them, but the color and a little bit of whimsy in the first one really appeals to me. I'm sure they'll love either one!

Sjn said...

I've always been a watercolor girl, so that one got my vote. Another great job!

Judy said...

I choose the watercolor because I'm a watercolorist. They are both great paintings and the acrylic is more vibrant but watercolor can be vibrant and full of color also. Look at David R. Daniels wonderful paintings. I'm sure the loved ones receiving your paintings are going to thrilled with either or both.

Lovely work you do. I prefer the acrylic. It's a lovely thank you. They should frame it and use as their house sign! Jane F.

Ginger said...

Ohhh..do I have to pick? Both are amazing. I guess it would depend on the style of her decor; is she a pastel girl or does she like a pop of color?

Bunny Jeans Decor... and More! said...

I didn't really vote because I agree with Ginger, that it depends on their decor and taste. I love both of them... and all your other work as well.

Talk to you soon ;)

I didn't vote because I love them both. What I would do is give them both! The acrylic one can be hung in the summer and spring months and the water color can be hung in the fall and winter months. I think they would LOVE them both!

melifaif said...

I love them both, honestly. I think they are so completely different which is funny because they are almost identical. The vibrancy of the first paints made me vote for that one! Fantastic.

creatingmenow said...

I didn't vote because I love them both!!!! They are beautiful. I think the decision ultimately comes down to how they have their home decorated and which style fits in best. These would also be great printed as notecards for them! You are so talented!

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Um. Choose? Is that even possible? They are both fantastic!
How lovely of them to support you in your art!

Carrie said...

Both are great, but I like the acrylic the best. Great job!

Stephanie Lynn said...

Amazing job! They both look great - I personally love the bright colors of the acrylics! Thanks for sharing..what a nice gift!

Carli@Fearfully&WonderfullyMade said...

They're both beautiful! I voted for the water color though . . .

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said...

Trish, I vote for both. I can't choose. I love the graphic nature of the acrylic. But I also love watercolors. Great gift! Enjoy the table :)

Jan @ bobbypinsboardwalk said...

Wow -- they are both gorgeous! What wonderful friends. I think the voting is going to really be tight on this one! I really like your blog and you are certainly one talented lady. Thank you for taking the time to link to the Boardwalk Bragfest! I know you'll get more feedback on the pictures...I love the acrylic!

Tammy at Tattered and Timeless said...

Suzanne said...

I love the bright colors in the acrylic! They are both wonderful!

The Girl Creative said...

Oh, this is a hard one! I think I like the watercolor one the best. Let me go vote! Thanks for linking up. :)

Becca @ Blue Cricket Design said...

You can't go wrong with either! I simply love the idea of painting a portrait of your home! You've inspired me!

Julie said...

i couldn't decide because they are both awesome! soi let my son decide and he liked the bright colors the best!!!
i seriously want to know how much you would charge to do that of my house???

Katie said...

You are so talented! I voted for the top one because I really liked the vibrant colors. I think you should give them both to your friends, they'll appreciate both versions for different reasons.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I love them both, but I love bright colors so I voted for the acrylic. Your paintings just make my heart smile!
