This looks so cool and serene.
I love your loose look to the flowers and trees and the path going off into the distance to an unknown mystery house. Very very nice! I am amazed at how you can do "loose" and "detailed" equally well.
Hugs,
Lorraine

A beautiful romantic mailbox! I was fascinated by the mailboxes in SC too, there were ones with so much character, some were painted and there was even one draped in the flag...unfortunately I didn't get around to it...

This looks lovely. Nice and loose and such a lovely letterbox. I would be excited at collecting my mail from such a lovely place. There sure wouldn't be any bills there! LOL
Nice work.

Oh what a lovely painting. It makes me think of my husbands mother. When my husband and I bought our first house, his mother talked me into buying a purple clematis. I knew nothing about plants and had never heard of clematis. When it bloomed it was the most beautiful plant. She was a wise woman I never regreted listening to her advise.
