 :clap: Mary Lou, your individual style shines through all around in this painting, with the usual careful attention to details and yet managing to make it your own.
 :clap: Trev, you achieved the WOW factor with your loose rendition of the subject.  I differ with you though... So far I see August as a 3-horse race, the most exciting painting challenge since I joined the group last April.

Hi Everyone this is my pastel attempt for August.  I enjoyed working on it but must admit I took quite some time working on drawing the boat had fun anyway
Cheers Therese

Win, nicely done. 

Love what you wrote on the sign!!!  Clever.  Actually, the painting of the sign frame shows great skills being used.
