House and Sky after Bellamy and Kersey

After all the excitement this weekend, I felt like sketching something a bit different from my 'normal' pallet, and so, using a combination of ideas and images, I painted this -- the farmhouse is one C and I saw in the rural parts of Oxford, the sky and foreground from color suggestions of Geoff Kersey and the style is more like David Bellamy's ....It was fun and the colors so different for me ...

Boots is doing well and getting 'out' from under the stairs more and more. I am so reluctant to leave for work -- I'm going to miss keeping an eye on the brood.

We're expecting some kind of 'weather' from Hurricane Hannah this Friday and Saturday ... fingers are crossed for only rain ...

Wow; yes, this is very different from your usual style but I like it. It shows your versatility -- and your continued growth as an artist! Good for you!
Hugs,
