Buildings around the World, Crazy House in Korea by Margaret Coote

I went on walks each morning up in the hills in Korea (Seoul). I found this crazy house with all these different shapes and textures, and it reminded me of something I might see in California. It looked like a creation dreamed up by Jules Verne. I love the cypresses (I think) that were in front of it, too. I painted this from a photo I took.

    1. I can't decide if this is a space-going or sea-going vessel! :) Thank you dear Christina :)
