My Houston Home Portrait Favorites

Houston Homes and Watercolor Memories…

Being that I am currently in the process of putting my coffee table book together, it occurred to me some months ago that I had virtually nothing to show for the state of Texas.  I mean it’s only one the 2nd biggest state geographically and the 3rd most populous state in the country!  I somehow had the idea that there would be nothing but boring dusty ranch houses, lots of brown and a distinct lack of anything resembling growth and green.

Upon arriving in Houston I discovered nothing could be further from the truth.  I first feasted on some of city’s oldest landmarks such as the famous art deco Houston Town Hall and the stunning Neo-Byzantine subjects standing tall on the campus of Rice University. But reaching beyond that into the quiet lush tree lined neighborhoods, I discovered a fascinating array of diverse and extremely interesting homes.  In addition to historic Tudor, Craftsman, Spanish style and Colonials, I found and selected many newly built homes to be part of my Houston series. I was impressed with their carefully designed and crafted character so that they blended seamlessly in with their more elderly architectural neighbors.

Here is a quick tour — or should say a flash exhibit — of just some of my favorite homes. However I have to say that all the homes in my Houston collection are favorites — but these ones I have featured below best showcase the eclectic and diverse mix of houses that makes up Houston, the biggest city in the Lone Star State!
