When I posted some of my recently redesigned rooms this week, both here and on flickr, I couldn't help but notice how many of you seemed to have expressed interest in my little collection of oil painting portraits. So, I decided to take a gander around the web and see what portraits I might be able to share with you, and yeah, maybe even add to my little family. I added this sleepy fellow below to my collection yesterday, when I ordered him frometsy shop, Rat Pack Pack Rat.
There's all kinds of these portraits out there, but I think to get it right, you have to find gems that just capture that perfect glimpse of irony. My parents think my paintings are hideous, and think I'm quite whacked for actually hanging them on my walls, which let's me know for certain, that these portraits have captured just what I'd hoped for. They've added a wee sense of humor to my decor. I barely ever take myself too seriously, even when it comes to my home.
