Rolling Hill House

Rolling Hill House - Book 69 page 12

In 1969, I started a new big sketchbook that continued yearning and dreaming although I had made decisions about stained glass panels and had started making them. This drawing, titled "Rolling Hill House" shows a recurring idea to live in and at the top of a small hill. The sky reminds me of Van Gogh's Starry Night. Part of the hilltop house idea is to see the whole sky all the time, night and day. The bottom part of the drawing is an enlargement of the building. To the bottom left is a floor plan showing the orientation of 6 windoors and furniture areas.
