Established in 2003, West Ridge Bungalow Neighbors is a voluntary group of neighbors in Chicago who desire to assist each other in preserving and appreciating the homes in our neighborhood; educating each other and the broader public in the value and the story of our neighborhood; and providing resources to each other to improve the quality of our homes, enrich our lives and assure our neighborhood's future.

Bungalow, deconstructed

So, you might recall the September 18, 2007 post about the Art Enables organization. On the left is our finished bungalow portrait, you can click on it to see the detail.

I love this sort of flattened, deconstructed rendering, and the level of detail our artist Vanessa included. I laughed when I saw my least favorite part of the house lovingly illustrated - the 60s lannon stone filling in the place on our front porch wall where 3 stained glass windows used to be.

At the moment one of our cats has chosen the painting as his nap spot...time to get this into a frame!
