We all probably had that stage, didn’t we? Dreaming about our future houses? What we want it to look like? Or maybe even just how the lot looked like?
‘Cause I definitely did. And I even had the gall to draw it back then.
My dream lot, as a child, had a rectangular shape with high fences. It was a wide stretch of green grass, like a meadow, with trees in the far off corner. Pine trees, maybe. Or those wide, big, chunky trees. I don’t really know. Anyways, there were trees. The lot had a stone driveway, lined with colorful flower bushes, that diverges with a large circular fountain then meets again to go straight towards the tall door of my humongous (if I say so myself) mansion. Typical childhood fantasies, I know. My cars were just parked in front and I didn’t even have the idea of actually sheltering them from rain. A butler was standing next to the door. It’s probably a robot, though. Or a statue. ‘Cause I never imagined it moving. Wooden benches and Teatime table sets were also located on my porch. For visitors, most likely, or for me when I just wanna breathe some fresh air. A swimming pool was then located at the back right (when you face the mansion). It was huge but just had the typical plain rectangular shape. Then, opposite it was a stable for horses. (I love horses). It was as huge as the probably Olympic-sized swimming pool, if not larger, but was actually just a patch of land with wooden fences enclosing it. I was really proud of that stable ’cause it was the main reason why I even wanted to draw my dream lot. I wanted a really big lot so that I can own a dozen of horses and that I can ride them during my break times. It sounds like any other petty childish dream but for me back then, it was really big. I wanted to earn a lot too just so that I can buy a huge lot. Makes me laugh when I think about it. So yeah, that was my dream lot as a young kid. I didn’t think much about my house when drew this. I just imagined it as some typical kickass mansion of those filthy rich guys out there. It was grey in color, though. That is, if I did remember correctly. : ))
