This is so pretty Mary Lou. I love the brickwork and the little open curtain. Makes the scene more inviting I think :)
Now if I could just figure out how to draw an eagles nest, I could start on this painting too! ::)

Thanks, Denise! Hey, good luck with the eagle nest.  Jennylynn did a great job with it.  I really had no clue how to draw it  :2funny:
