Close to Home, by Joan Tavolott

Seeing the sketches of the chairs and cosy corners of rooms I decided to do a small sketch of part of my living room. This is my loveseat, lamp, and end table with a framed photo and flower in a vase.
I rarely sit over there because I am on the couch directly in front of this sketch. The couch and loveseat are at right angles. Unlike Lynn's couch this one is super comfortable and I don't slide off. LOL


  1. This is a FANTASTIC piece. Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. Joan, you were smart to get a non-slide couch! However, that said I bet I win in the ankle strength races at the Olympics what with all my years of bracing practice trying to remain upright on my couch! Just sayin'.
    That said, I really like how you painted your blinds with just paint and no ink lines! Super cool!
    Actually, the entire corner has made a superlative painting! I love it!

  3. It looks very comfortable and cozy!! Love how inviting it looks...very pretty!

  4. I love the composition! And the rose in its little vase is so pretty.

  5. I love the way you have gone about this painting Joan. Super good :-)

  6. Thank everyone!

    Lynn, maybe we should get you some velcro. lol There is one benefit to not being able to sit on will last longer.

    1. Don't think I haven't thought of that, Joan! Super glue too to fix it to the slick leather!

  7. I love sketches and paintings of interiors. Your little corner looks so pretty and cozy! I am always found wherever the lamp is, LOL.

  8. LOL Thanks, Melisa. Maybe I'll get around to sketching my resting spot...but it means I have to get out of it!

  9. Nice job. I feel like sitting down and visiting.:)

  10. This is really a good composition. The colors harmonize together. Beautiful,Joan!
