I was inspired by the painted cigar box that I purchased last month to try making one of my own.
Houses often symbolize yourself and when people have house dreams - like someone coming over and seeing how messy it is - it usually is interpreted to be a person's fears about others finding out about the "messy" parts of you.
You may have noticed that houses are a recurring motif in art - they are something we all relate too instinctively.
These houses though are intended to bring cheerful, happy silliness into your life. To add some color and some funky joyful abandon.
The value of having an art piece that is a box is that you can write your dreams or your worries down and put them in the box. Then the box can carry them for you and you can move boldly forward.
I'll be listing it on Etsy once I'm feeling a little stronger.
Thanks, Kathi for the cigar boxes.
Which house pictured is most like you?
