My Home, November 1980

Posted by Phil Morris (Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada) on 27 March 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This was my much loved home in 1980, and the first home I really loved. It was semi- full
of all the things I picked up at my favourite auction. The deep burgandy couch was in like
new condition. It had been plastic covered all its life by the previous owner. There was a
bidding war, but I was the only one with cash. Above the couch was the blank wall which
usually held the latest pictures that I was working on, be it a portrait or a movie star
portrait I had coloured and ready for the store that I sold them at. To the left of the couch
was my trunk where I kept all my interesting outfits and accessories and backgrounds for
doing my portraits of people. It was a wonderful life where my "sitters" helped pay for
the home and also the antiques I loved to fill it with !!~

@Devi: Yes I did Devi, one of them ran 20 feet in both directions , so there were lines of nice vines running through the space.

Despite being from the 1980's, there's a sense of vintageness evoked in this shot! I can see why your plants thrived with so much light. The trunk is similar to the one my parents had. We stored our favorite wrapping blankets in it for the winter season.

Looks very 'livable' with all the plants and your collectibles! Did you have much use for the hood drier? ;-)

Wonderful atmosphere to enjoy the art. The photos, the furniture, the plants ... gorgeous everything. You are a passionate artist without a doubt. Thank you for sharing it with us at Aminus.
Finally I regret that it is no longer yours ... surely it was very hard to get rid of it. Hugs to you dear friend...

That couch is amazing! You definitely don't see couches like that anymore.
