I have a thing for little houses. It is most likely due to my larger obsession with containers in general. Though I am sure there is a deeper symbolic connection – you know, home is where the heart is and all that. What I love about this collection of artwork is that no matter the size of the artwork or materials used, each house structure has a suggested anchored sturdiness and stability as well as having a push and pull between being inviting and having a definite private boundary.
