Collections: Castle Oil Painting

Our walls are a testament to my love of old painting, there isn't a square inch free, and the overflows are packed safely away. Although space is tight, I decided that I would collect Castle paintings after returning from our holiday to England last year.

There is a method to my madness, I have a strict criteria, they must be painted in oil and have some age to them. We finally hung them in the lounge room, though I was hoping to line a wall in the new extension, but that may or may not come to fruition. So up them went.

Did you notice that we have three Windsor Castle paintings?

Can you spot the odd one out (other than the sickly girl with dog print)?

Thanks for visiting,  Tam x

Thank you for the positive feedback regarding my stamp jewellery, only a few weeks left until the markets and I can let you know how they went. 
p.s. Kimmie and Clare, your pieces will be posted out today :)

Lovely paintings Tam, especially love the first one of Windsor Castle. I also spied your lovely collection of French marriage stands, they are beautiful.

I really love these, I have a thing for naive oil paintings so the Windsor ones are especially lovely. Is the 2nd to last one the odd one out as there's no castle? I also love maudlin Victorian prints! x

Your paintings look wonderful grouped together on your white walls. Love the chippy gold frames. The marriage stands are so beautiful too. Have a great weekend! M x
