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. That is indeed a crazy house -- I love it! It reminds me a farm silo + spaceships + Howl's Moving Castle :) You have such beautiful talent, dearheart <3!

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

    2. Ooh, yes, submarine-like, perhaps...

  2. Margaret, what an unusual looking building. I wonder what the designer was thinking. lol Great sketch of it!

  3. The house looks really a bit crazy, but you have painted it marvelous!

  4. They do look Jules Verne/ish lovely to have seen something like this. Glad you did the painting to share with us Margaret.

  5. Thanks everyone! I was really happy I saw it, too :)

  6. That really is a crazy house! It made for a wonderfully whimsical sketch!
