This is my sun room. It was a covered patio.We enclosed in last summer . The room is all things I had in the house or storage shed .We now have a patio off the sun room. Joe just finished it. It is almost always cool, Very cool in the winter we do not heat it .At the end of the room I have a closet full of my holiday storage and it is now full. But under my bed a cleaned out.

Just leave a comment I really like it.
I'm sure you all have seen the original Painting of this "The American Gothic"
I have wanted to paint this for years. I have a vintage frame .When it is dry I will frame it. The people who have looked at it think it looks like Joe not so much me.I took artist license fixed a couple things I didn't like made myself with gray hair ,mine is colored so maybe looks different. I do not know what I look like if I'm not looking a mirror even the picture I had to look at still did not do well .You think about it do you know what you look like?
